Grizzly G0752 10 by 22-Inch Variable Speed Lathe

The Model G0752 is a variable speed version of our G0602 10-Inch x 22-Inch Bench Lathe. It shares the same features and accessories as the G0602, but is equipped with a digital RPM display on the headstock. It also has electronic variable speed spindle control, which allows you to change spindle speeds with the simple turn of a dial-and while the lathe is still running. This feature eliminates the additional time it takes to stop the motor and then change gears or move levers around when changing spindle speeds. Even better, the fine degree of control allows you to set the optimum spindle speed for your feed speed and workpiece material, so that you can get the best finishes possible.

Grizzly G0733 18 by 47-Inch Heavy Duty Wood Lathe

Need a solid cast iron lathe with big capacity? Well, look no further because this 18-Inch x 47-Inch Wood Lathe has it all. You’ll appreciate the cast-in shelf brackets for adding additional mass, variable speed control in two torque ranges, digital speed indicator, forward and reverse switch and convenient utility basket. Single-phase frequency drive technology provides the electronic variable speed control without the three-phase power requirement. All you need is standard 220 volt, single-phase power to be up and running in no time. You’ll be amazed by all the quality and innovative features this lathe has to offer. We changed from a (brushless) DC motor to a 3-phase AC motor for several reasons. It-Inchs quieter, electrically more efficient and provides smoother power output – especially at slower speeds. The DC motor design can be a bit choppy at slower speeds and while most users wouldn-Incht notice this, we decided it was worth the upgrade. Also, 3-phase AC motors are the most reliable motor design that there is. So the change improves both the performance and reliability of an already outstanding heavy-duty wood lathe.
