Introducing the SB1126, an 18" x 40" Variable-Speed Wood Lathe, crafted with precision and durability by South Bend, renowned leaders in metal-turning machines. This heavy-duty wood lathe is designed for professional use, drawing from South Bend's expertise in producing high-end metalworking lathes for the U.S. military and major commercial enterprises.

The variable speed feature offers two ranges, providing flexibility between 50 and 900 RPM in low and 170 to 3200 RPM in high, ensuring swift adjustments tailored to the demands of each project and delivering impeccable finishes.

This specialized lathe includes an auxiliary bed for bowl turning, offering more workspace compared to standard lathes with only a tool rest. Enjoy the convenience of forward and reverse spindle controls, facilitating easy direction changes during turning.

The precision-ground cast-iron bed, coupled with the bed extension, provides robust support for your workpiece throughout the turning process. The SB1126 boasts 10-degree spindle indexing for precise workpiece positioning, accompanied by 6" faceplate chucks on both ends of the spindle.

Notable features include built-in chisel holders for added convenience and a dual emergency stop button for enhanced safety.

Your machine comes with a comprehensive, easy to follow manual written by the South Bend HQ documentation department right here in the USA.
