The Vicmarc lathes manufactured in Australia are some of the best quality lathes around. The VL300 Bench mount lathe is the ideal heavy duty lathe with the flexibility to be used as a bowl lathe as well as a spindle turning lathe. The optional extension bed (V00107) can be used to extend the bed length for spindle work or mounted on the headstock for outboard bowl turning. This ensures the optimum body position for turning as the bed of the lathe is not in the way.
The VL300 Bench Mount series is offered with a steel manufactured stand together with a 2,2kW motor, variable speed drive, remote control and digital speed readout.
The three-step pulleys provide 3 ratios 1:1 for small to medium size work; 1:1.5 for medium to large work; and 1:3 for large work.
The VL300 short bed version has an optional 500mm or 1000mm bolt on extension facility. By bolting the extension on to the end of the lathe the distance between centres will either be 1000mm or 1500mm.
