This lathe combines the best features of larger lathes – power, capacity and capability with state-of-the-art technology to make your turning more efficient, fun and safer.

Great for those who need all the workshop space they can get, the Orion features a deep 18" (457mm) over-the-bed swing and a compact 22.75" (578mm) between centres. This lathe is perfect for the avid bowl turner, yet can be expanded with the included bed extensions in this kit to a MASSIVE 44" (1110mm) for longer spindle turning if ever required.

The swivel head can combine with the articulated Outrigger Accessory (available separately), giving an enormous large bowl capacity of 29” (736mm). With no pulleys or belts to vibrate, the Award-Winning DVR Direct Drive Motor is incredibly smooth and delivers intelligent control to your turning experience.

The 2HP Direct Drive Motor senses and adjusts torque according to load - meaning your torque and turning speed remain constant under load. The digital interface features 8 favourite speed settings, forward/reverse, electronic variable speed from 100 to 5000RPM, vibration sensing technology, idle motor detection and more. An E-Stop on the head along with an additional magnetic/moveable E-Stop provides additional safety in use.

The head can swivel 360°, with pre-set indents at 0°, 22.5°, 45° and 90°. The tailstock features an auto-ejecting centre as well as onboard storage for same. The stand and bed have been significantly beefed up making a very heavy duty, solid and strong lathe.

Perfect for schools, sheds and clubs with its inherent safety technology, this lathe is equally suited to the professional and amateur alike!
