PS Tools Maxi Lathe

16x43" Wood Lathe, Variable Speed With 1.5HP motor and Cast Iron Stand

The Pop's Shed  Maxi Lathe is a full function variable speed lathe with a number of great features.  Probably most importantly is the variable speed available at the twist of a lever.  Anyone who has had to change a belt to change the speed on their lathe will appreciate the ease of pulling a lever to increase or decrease speed.   The Maxi Lathe also has a digital speed indicator to let you know exactly what speed the lathe is traveling.

The second very impressive feature  is the ability for the Headstock to rotate a full 90 degrees and allow outboard turning of large pieces.  This sort of feature has only been available in very expensive lathes costing 4 times the price of the Pop's Shed Maxi Lathe.
