The "VB36 Master Bowlturner Lathe" - that's the correct English name - has rightly earned the status of a cult machine in recent years. The unlimited access to the workpiece makes the lathe an ideal tool for making large bowls or vessels. Plain bearings ensure extremely smooth running. The weight of 265kg also defies heavy workpieces. The machine is optionally expandable with bench bed and tailstock and can therefore also be used like a conventional wood lathe. The machine can also be delivered in other heights upon request (please request a quote).
