Turn wood blanks up to 16” with the Laguna Revo 1216 Midi Lathe EVS when you rotate the headstock.

Three speed ranges are easily changed using the front access door – with no tools needed. A magnetic closure holds the door shut. Simply rotate the handle 90° to elevate the motor and lower the pulleys and then adjust the belt position. Turn the handle back to re-tension. Once a speed range (low, mid or high) is selected, you can dial into the exact speed you want using the silver knob. The bright blue digital display shows the selected speed.

The green (on) and red (off) buttons are big and easy to press. A forward-reverse toggle button allows you to change the direction of rotation.

A 24-position indexing plate allows the headstock to rotate in 15° increments. The headstock and tail stock accept an MT2 taper. A drive center and live center are included.

The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) motor utilizes transistors for fast communication between the motor and controller. PWM controls stabilize the RPM and provide consistent torque (voltage) when using speeds at low RPM so you can turn with confidence at any speed on the Laguna Revo 1216 Midi Lathe EVS.

Includes lathe, face plate, drive center, live center, center knock out rod and face plate wrench.

Eric Gorges, host of A Craftsman's Legacy is a wonderful craftsman but didn't know much about turning wood. So, he headed to his local Woodcraft Store to pick up the tools and knowledge he would need to get started.

    Brilliant Machine! Great Price Point!

    This machine is marvelous! I had a Rikon 70-105 that had a ton of issues, so I replaced it with this lathe. I am nothing but impressed. The belt change mechanism is seamless, the forward/reverse is excellent for sanding, the control interface is both beautiful and easy to use, and the extension options are already built in for expansion. I will be purchasing all of the extensions soon. If youvplan on getting into turning, get this lathe. It’s perfect for beginners, but has all the power you will need as you learn and go pro.
