Perfect for pen turning and small projects. This benchtop model meets the demands of pen turners and miniature hobbyists. Easily adjust the variable-speed spindle from 750-3200 RPM for precision crafting.

Crafted with stability in mind, the lathe features cast-iron construction, a 5-3/4" faceplate, 8" swing over the bed, and 13" distance between centers. Interchangeable 4-1/4" and 7" tool rests lock securely into a quick-adjust base, providing optimal support during cutting and minimizing leverage.

Enhanced with extra-large knurled knobs on the spindle and tailstock for an ergonomic grip during manual rotation and center changes. Backed by a 2-year warranty, the W1704 ensures quality and defect-free performance.
