The VL240 Lathes have a swivel head feature which allows for the headstock to turn its normal straight position (see photo above) out to 90 degrees. There are four individual pin-lock positions at increments of 22.5 degrees which aid in turner comfort when turning inside vessels and bowls. It has an accurate locking feature which ensures that the lathe will return to perfect zero position. The VL240 has a very 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 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 start up while the indexing pin is engaged.
