MAXI-1-M33 Heavy Duty Cast Iron Swivel Head Variable Speed Lathe

The MAXI-1 has been specially designed to offer large capacities and support for heavy work in a compact design. Combining Record’s traditional swivel head functionality 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 legs, headstock, tailstock and cast bed. The power, solidity and value of this machine is unrivaled in its class.

Heavy Duty Cast Iron Headstock

Despite its weight, the strongly made headstock is easily swivelled using the cam lock lever. The belt tension is controlled by a large and easy to move lever. A substantial handwheel gives full control of the spindle. There are three presets at 0º, 30º and 90º but any angle can be selected and locked securely in a thick selector plate in the base.
