Product Description

Sanding a turned piece with the grain causes the wood fibers to lay down and remain rough. Sanding a turned piece against the grain will cut the wood fibers smooth. Rotating the turned piece in both directions is the way to achieve a super smooth finish. Most lathes the turner would need to remount the workpiece backward to achieve this dual rotation. This is time consuming and often impossible. With the Delta 46-460 it is as simple as a flip of the switch.

- The Powerful 1 HP Max motor delivers 1,725 RPM allowing for optimal stock removal
- The large 12-1/2" swing capacity provides the largest capacity for midi-lathes
- Has the best-in-class speed range from 250-4,000 RPM giving the slowest low end speed in its class for large turning and fast high end speed for small turnings
- The forward and reversing function allows the turner to achieve a superior finish
- The patented belt tension system allows for easy and quick speed changes and sets the belt at the correct tension every time for maximum power transfer and longer tool life
- The indexing pin is used to lock the head stock spindle in 24 different locations for fluting and other decorative applications
- The all cast-iron construction provides stability and is extremely durable
- The midi-lather includes a 3" face plate, a 6" tool rest and a 10" tool rest
- Turning long spindles require either a longer tool rest or the user to continually move the short tool rest
- Turning short work requires a short spindle
- The over headstock On/Off switch provides easy in use access
- With a maximum distance between centers of 42" (with bed extension), the MIDI LATHE turns objects as long as a chair leg or as short as a thimble
- Utilizes a ball-bearing live center for fluent movement
- Has a heavy-duty, steel knockout bar
- The extension bed (Model 46-463) is a 25-1/2" long cast-iron bed that increases the overall bed length of the 46-460 to 42" (sold separately)
- The electronic variable speed control has three pulley speed ranges that provide the required speeds needed to turn a project without changing belt position
- The 6 groove belt allows for superior power to turn larger objects
- The large up front belt access allows the user to easily change speeds
- The on board storage allows for easy access to the adjustment tools
- The 6" and 10" tool rests help to provide tool support in a variety of turning applications
