The lathe contained in this package, the DML18SH, is ideally suited to the ambitious beginner or more serious turner on a restricted budget. It is based on Record Power's extremely popular DML36SH-CAM lathe and features 4 speeds and cam lock handles on both the banjo and tailstock for ease of use. The tubular steel bed bars, sealed for life bearings and heavyweight cast construction provide a rigid base for turning. To save valuable space in the workshop, the lathe has been made more compact by giving 18" between centres - Still providing plenty of capacity for tackling a huge range of projects whilst also being greater than many other compact lathes on the market. Simple to operate and low in maintenance, this lathe is perfect either for the starter who wants a machine that will grow with their skills, or as an upgrade to some of the poorer quality machines often aimed at beginners, which often lack any meaningful range of compatible accessories and are plagued with poor performance issues.

The package also contains a set of four essential high quality turning tools, a woodscrew chuck (for mounting bowls) and an indispensable tuitional DVD, presented by Alan Holtham. This excellent DVD features full lathe assembly instructions and over two hours of tuition, covering the techniques essential for both bowl and spindle turning, as well as showing the correct tools to use and how to sharpen them successfully. It really is the ideal introduction to the world of woodturning.

Of course, many woodturners can attest to the addictive nature of woodturning. As skills and confidence grow, many complement their workshop with accessories and upgrades to cater for their developing abilities. Record Power offers a huge range of options, from their extremely popular range of chucks, jaws, faceplates and many other accessories, right up to professional variable speed machines, all upwardly compatible to ensure that the DML18SH-SK package is not only a great deal but also a very sensible investment. This package also comes with Record Power's standard industry-leading 5 year guarantee.
