Laguna MLAREVO1216EVS Revo 12/16 Midi Lathe

Save $130.00
Turn wood blanks up to 16” with the Laguna Revo 1216 Midi Lathe EVS when you rotate the headstock. 

Three speed ranges are easily changed using the front access door – with no tools needed. A magnetic closure holds the door shut. Simply rotate the handle 90° to elevate the motor and lower the pulleys and then adjust the belt position. Turn the handle back to re-tension. Once a speed range (low, mid or high) is selected, you can dial into the exact speed you want using the silver knob. The bright blue digital display shows the selected speed.

The green (on) and red (off) buttons are big and easy to press. A forward-reverse toggle button allows you to change the direction of rotation.

A 24-position indexing plates allows the headstock to rotate in 15° increments. The headstock and tail stock accept an MT2 taper. A drive center and live center are included. 

The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) motor utilizes transistors for fast communication between the motor and controller. PWM controls stabilize the RPM and provide consistent torque (voltage) when using speeds at low RPM so you can turn with confidence at any speed on the Laguna Revo 1216 Midi Lathe EVS.

Includes lathe, face plate, drive center, live center, center knock out rod and face plate wrench.

Wish I would have bought this lathe years ago

The REVO 12/16 is a beast among midi lathes! It's big and solid enough to handle out-of-round blanks with ease, while still being very smooth and quiet to operate. Very user friendly lathe. I wish I would have bought it when it came out a couple years ago instead of nursing my mini lathes along for as long as I did.

A little REVOlution!

My first lathe and my favorite new toy! Perfect for my small basement shop. 16'' outboard turning, 24 indexing position, reverse turning, you won't find better at this price tag. I LOVE IT!
