Wood Turning Lathes

A quality wood lathe machine is key in any woodworking shop – every good carpenter will tell you that. Without a wood lathe, your ability to create beautiful woodwork is instantly limited.

Wood turning lathes are machines that help create circular wooden objects. These handy machines rotate a piece of wood at speed so it can be more easily cut, sanded, knurled, drilled, or turned into a shape of the craftsman’s choosing, using a variety of chisels and knives. But choosing one is sometimes easier said than done – especially when there are so many on the market today.

That’s where Kendal Tools can help.

We are a leading UK supplier of wood turning lathes and have a comprehensive range to choose from, including popular manufacturing brands, such as Charnwood, Scheppach, SIP, Fox and Draper.

The wood lathes for sale, here at Kendal Tools, are an excellent choice for hobby woodturners as they remain small enough to be transported comfortably in the boot of a car. Take the Scheppach DMT450, for instance. Heavier duty machines are also available to purchase from our online store, including the Scheppach Lata 5.0, which is aimed at the professional or serious woodworking enthusiast.

In addition to this, we can supply handy accessories to go alongside your new lathe machine, such as LED lights, allowing you to see what you’re doing when working on a more detailed piece. We also offer complete sets of chisels and other replacement pieces, so that you’re never caught short.

How to choose a wood turning lathe

It’s easy to get it wrong when choosing a lathe machine, that’s why we advise you to take your time and weigh up all your options before rushing your decision.

First things first, you need to consider how much space you have in your workshop because our wood lathes are available in all sizes. If you have the space to facilitate a larger lathe, we suggest you do so as it’s far more versatile than a smaller model and can be used to do small pieces too. But, if space is at a premium, or you only have a limited budget to work with, a good-quality small woodturning lathe is an excellent alternative.

Many of our wood lathes come with powerful 3/4hp induction motors and full electronic variable speed control. This means you can control the speed of your lathe at the simple touch of a button, which is especially useful when applying those all-important finishing touches to your work.
