The lathe features forward and reverse spindle rotation as well as a double threaded 1"x8TPI spindle that allows the user to turn on both sides of the lathe. With the expansion set (ALAREVO1216 Extension) the turner can choose to extend the center to center capacity by 10 inches or outfit their lathe for outboard turning. The high-torque motor controller will allow wood-turners to freely turn up to a 16" work-piece without stalling or bogging down the spindle.
The expansion set consist of 3 parts: the 10" cast iron extension that can mount Right or Left side. Tool-Rest extender for outboard use & an adaptor that allows 1" chucks with either Left or Right handed threads to be used outboard.
