This is a old Woodfast 400 1987 vintage with a serious upgrade.
re-painted in Hammertone, new contactor to hook up with a Lenze VSD for a variable speed drive on a 3phase motor,up grading it from 1/2hp to 1hp. Also fitted a remote speed control with magnetic base, not a major requirement on a short, bed lathe but handy never the less. Current speed range is 0-2600 and I can go higher with a reset to the VSD. I have left the 4 mechanical speeds as it was to much hassle to remove buy a new pulley set up
The blank is 12"x4" eucalyptus burl so it can handle a decent sized bowl, between centres it can handle 14" . This is good for hollow vessels asyou can get all around the lathe with great ease.
