The WL520A is a truly classic lathe, featuring a fixed head for outboard turning. It has been designed to offer large capacities and support for heavy work in a traditional configuration that is familiar to woodturners worldwide.
The high quality inverter converts the single phase supply to three phase, enabling smooth and stepless adjustment with a wide range of speeds with impressive torque.
Combined with modern construction and high quality electronic control, this machine is ideal for the professional woodturner as well as the dedicated enthusiast. Cast iron features heavily in the construction of this machine, including the headstock, tailstock and cast bed. The splayed legs give further stability, with an opposing asymmetrical design to spread load and counteract the forces generated by this formidable lathe.
