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. 1 1/2HP in our 12” Tailspinner.
Drill deeper with the 4” tailstock travel.
