There are very few woodturners around have not heard about the VB36 and many dream of having this piece of machinery in their workshop.After many successful years of VB36 being manufactured by Hegner UK its original designers, followed by a few years with Technology Supplies Ltd. (UK), the VB36 took its legacy from Great Britain to Germany.
