VB36© Master Bowlturner Lathe
In the early 1990s, Englishmen Nigel Voisey and Roger Buse threw out all conventions about woodturning lathes and created a masterpiece of English engineering: the VB36 Master Bowlturner Lathe.
Since then, the VB36 has triumphed around the globe. There is hardly a woodturner who has not heard of the VB36, and many dream of having it in their workshop.
After many successful years manufacturing the VB36 by Hegner UK, its original designers, followed by a few years at Technology Supplies Ltd (UK), the VB36 has brought its heritage from the UK to Germany. VB36 manufacturing moved to the Ore Mountains in June 2013 and is now part of the passionate, family run operation of steinert® (steinert®, hapfo®, Killinger®, WEMA®). steinert® is keeping the legend alive and will prepare the VB36 for the future. We are very proud to take on this responsibility.
