VICMARC Lathe - VL240 Bench Mount
The New VL240 Swivel Head Lathe is a versatile machine because of its 90 degree swivel head facility and solid cast iron construction. The VL240 Bench Mount 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 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.
Another great new feature on this lathe is the indexing pin safety switch. This prevents accidental startup while the indexing pin is engaged.
