Machine Mart announces new additions to the Clarke woodturning lathes range

Machine Mart’s range of expert woodworking equipment has been expanded with the addition of two new Clarke woodturning lathes. These two bench-top, variable speed models are ideal for hobby turners with home workshops. Both models feature a solid steel construction with tough powder-coated finish, along with rubber feet for added stability, which makes them perfectly suited to bench-top use.

Clarke CWL435 435mm woodturning lathe (370W)

The first model, the Clarke CWL435 370W woodturning lathe, has 435mm distance between centres to allow for turning longer spindles. The 127mm centre height from the base also allows a large turning capacity of 254mm. This model has five turning speeds, ranging from 760-3,200rpm and a 80mm faceplace diameter.

Distance between centres:
Turning capacity: 254mm
Watts: 370W

Clarke CWL460 460mm variable speed woodturning lathe (550W)

The CWL460 provides three speeds ranging from 650rpm up to 3,800rpm and unlike the CWL435, benefits from a digital display for ease of use.
