Lathe PD 230/E

Quality you can see and touch!

The PD 230/E is designed for people who appreciate quality. However, to use this lathe does not mean you need to be a professional turner. The handbook is detailed and easy to understand. The lathe runs quietly and is small and light enough to be packed away after each usage. The center height and the distance between centers are sufficient for a multitude of tasks.

The machine is usable on materials such as plastic, steel, brass and aluminum and comes complete with automatic feed, thread cutting capability, headstock chuck, live center and top slide for taper turning. It may be used to part, turn and cut tapers. The numerous optional accessories add the versatility you need to complete all your miniature projects.
