    Manufactured in England, the VB36™ Master Bowlturner Lathe is truly unique in its design and approach to large diameter woodturning. Designed for operation as a stand-alone pedestal lathe, the VB36™ does not require the use of a tailstock/bed assembly. The VB36™ has the ability to hold work up to 500 lbs compliments of its heavy-duty cast iron construction and unique spindle and bearing system.
    At the heart of the VB36™ is a massive, dynamically balanced 2-1/2" dia. spindle that floats on a thin layer of lubricant similar to a camshaft in a car engine. This "plain bearing" design is used in applications from watchmaker lathes to giant turbine engines because of its phenomenal load bearing ability and extreme accuracy. Made in England.

    Lathe Features:
  • Heavy duty cast iron construction
  • Triple bayonet mount faceplates
  • 2-1/2" Dia. balanced spindle
  • Heavy 3/16" plate steel base
  • Dual pulley, 3 HP variable speed drive
  • Remote control box

Best Lathe Ever Encountered

Comments On Oct 30, 2015:Without doubt, the most vibration free lathe I have ever used. I bought mine 15 years ago and have used it regularly and it still looks and performs as new. None of the components even show wear! I have turned bowls up to 3 feet in diameter, using some very heavy stock, and the lathe wasn't working hard. These used to be available with an equally heavy duty tail stock and a floor tool rest stand, both of which I purchased, which literally allows turning objects up to nearly 8 feet in diameter....if you have the desire. I do believe the lathe has all the power needed. Another favorite feature of mine is this being a reversing lathe. Finishing pieces to a high gloss is easy with reversing capability. The stability and construction of this lathe won't be found on any the "stand" lathes, regardless of their bells, whistles and cost. This lathe is expensive, but I have no doubt it will be working for more than one lifetime.
