VICMARC Lathe - VL240 Adjustable Stand Mount

The VL240 ASM Swivel Head Lathe is a versatile machine because of its 90 degree swivel head facility and solid cast iron construction. The VL240 has an electronic variable speed drive that gives up to 200% torque on low rpm with a powerful 1.5kW motor.  The Variable Speed Unit for VL240 is contained inside a strong steel enclosure and can be mounted on the wall behind the machine.

The lathe is mounted on a adjustable 4mm thick plate stand which has been designed with a 700mm wide footprint for stability and rigidity.  The adjustable legs allow you to customise the height to suit your ideal work height.

The VL240 lathe comes with 3 step pulleys which provide 3 ratios 1:1 for small to medium size work; 1:1.5 for medium to large work; and 1:3 for large work.  For extra torque, simply change the Poly V Belt to the 1:3 ratio.  Also included is a digital speed readout, located on the headstock, that displays the actual spindle RPM regardless of which ratio the belt is located on. 

Headstock positioned at 90 degrees.  The headstock can be positioned in 4 positions 0, 30, 60 & 90 degrees.  An outboard turning attachment can be purchased as an optional extra.

This lathe also includes a new ergonimic toolrest.

Seperate electronic variable speed box that can be mounted away from the lathe and magnetic switch box that can be positioned anywhere you are working.

Another great new feature on this lathe is the indexing pin safety switch.  This prevents accidental startup while the indexing pin is engaged. 


Maximum spindle RPM at each Pulley step.

Vicmarc (Awesome) Lathes

By: on 31 May 2015
Hey there, have had the 2 (yes Two) Vicmarc VL 240 Lathes setup and running for about 2 months now, and enjoying the experience heaps. The lathes are built like trains, very solid. The remote box that houses the on/off and Reverse switches and Variable speed control, is great as you can move it to where it is needed, or where it isn't needed. Being able to swivel the Head stock around, makes it easy on the back when hollowing bowls and hollow vessels, and turning items like Goblets and Flowers, I would recommend Vicmarc lathes to anybody who is thinking of buying a quality all purpose lathe, their variety of products is extensive.
