Product Description

The variable speed motor provides instantaneous speed control as you turn. The relentless 1HP motor delivers the power, control and versatility that is essential for the most demanding turning projects. Top notch cast iron construction and design ensures you years of trouble-free turning and excellent performance. This sturdy lathe will prove the workhorse you need for all of your turning needs from pen turning through 10” bowls. And is ETL listed and tested according to nearly 200 safety and performance standards.

You get everything our original Turncrafter Commander Variable Speed Lathes do, plus so much more.

You’ll flip over this! The whole piece – centers and chuck – can be flipped to assure exact mounting on the same axis. Amazing! Just leave your faceplate or chuck attached when reversing a bowl blank keeping the bowl exactly centered on the lathe axis. Identical tailstock and headstock 1” x 8tpi threads means you can mount your work flip it around, then flip it back. Remounting without fear of misalignment. Lock the live tailstock spindle with the turn of a handle.

Make no mistake, this will end centering errors. Forever. No need for you to re-chuck the piece, so when you reverse a piece and turn it from the other end it is perfectly centered.

Feel the freedom and add functionality with more tailstock attachments. Any center, chuck or accessory threaded or with a Morse taper that mounts to the headstock can operate live on the live Tailspinner tailstock.

You’ll rev up your creative powers with our most powerful motor ever. 1hp in our 10” Tailspinner.

Drill deeper with the 4” tailstock travel.

Not only is the live Tailspinner built in, but so are the savings! Save hundreds of dollars as it eliminates the need for separate/additional Live tailstock accessories or live accessory systems. And includes extra accessories to take advantage of the live tailstock: Extra Spur center, Mandrel Saver, Safety Center and 60° dead center.
