Details

The Rikon® 14" x 20" VSR Midi Lathe - 1-1/2 HP 1 Ph 115V is the largest benchtop lathe in the Rikon® line of machinery. This upgraded model gives woodturners greater stock-holding capacity both in swing and distance between centers, allowing you to turn larger bowls and longer spindles. Adding three machined surfaces to mount optional extensions increases the working dimensions even further.

Use the headstock's outboard threaded spindle and optional 13-1/2" Extension (70-903) to add 4" of extra turning diameter capacity. Mount this same extension to the front of the lathe bed, and with the remounted tool rest, you can safely turn the outside edges or backs of bowls. Lastly, the right bed end of the lathe is machined to attach the optional 13-1/2" or the longer 24" extension (70-904) for increasing the working distance from 20" to 44" for spindles.

Equipped with a powerful 1-1/2 HP TEFC DC motor, the Model 70-1420VSR provides ample power for demanding turning projects. The lathe features 24 indexing positions, each 15° apart, allowing for precise and accurate workpiece positioning during machining operations. The variable speed control allows for easy spindle speed adjustment within three ranges from 250 to 3850 RPM, providing optimal speed for various materials and turning applications. The heavy-duty cast-iron bed and headstock provide stability and durability for years of reliable use. Convenient built-in storage compartment for tools and accessories, keeping everything within reach and organized.
