Electronics Wood lathe  CL4
Many professional turners get the most valuable works by exploiting the potential of the electronic inverter to vary the speed.

Most serious and professional woodturners have realised the benefits of infinitely variable speed control.
This allows the user to run the lathe at just the right speed for the job, with a simple turn of a dial. The speed can be varied from 13rpm to 4600rpm*.
Newly upgraded, the electronics and inverter are now housed in a dust proof
metal enclosure certified to ip 55 standard.
This offers even greater levels of protection for the advanced control circuits. This speed control unit should not be confused with cheap and inferior expanding pulley systems, which have limited speed ranges,
often have vibration problems and due to the inherent weakness in their design, wear belts at a rapid rate. The CL4 uses a 3 phase motor and inverter to provide the power and is a truly professional solution, used throughout the machine tool industry.
The CL series has long been at the heart of the Record Power range of woodturning lathes, having found their way into countless workshops of both professional and hobbyist woodturners for many decades. This new updated range builds on all the great design features that have made the previous machines so consistently popular, with a number of improvements and developments to give even greater performance and value for money.
The bed bars of both machines have increased diameters for improved stability and their length has been revised to be a more compact and practical 24” in length. Optional bed bar extensions are available for those who turn very large items between centres. The spindle thread of the lathes has been increased in size to the popular M33 thread, bringing it in line with our heaviest duty lathes to give unsurpassed solidity and increasing compatibility across the range.
The headstock features easy maintenance sealed-for-life bearings, 2 at the front and 1 at the rear of the spindle, providing excellent support for the movement of the spindle. The spindle itself is hollow, allowing a knockout bar to be used to aid removal of headstock accessories.
The tailstock, which now features a 2 Morse taper barrel, also has an upgraded hand wheel to the rear, making movement of the barrel much easier. The tool rest has an improved one-piece cast design with a larger 1” diameter stem, giving a more sturdy base to turn from with increased support for the chisel.
The CL4 features the famous VSLK variable speed unit, offering incredible versatility with its responsive variable speed change.

Variable Speed Unit Newly improved and now more efficient. Provides simple, responsive and smooth speed change at the turn of a dial. This unit is assembled in the UK using components from a high quality German supplier. It is the industrial solution to variable speed control. Most turning can be achieved safely and effectively between 400 and 2000rpm. The higher speeds are only to be used by experienced turners who have had adequate training and observe all recommended safety and operating procedures.
