Specializing in high-quality woodworking machinery, Rikon has gained a reputation for producing sturdy, reliable benchtop lathes.

Made from substantial iron castings, these lathes have the mass needed to dampen vibration, with carefully machined components for precise operation.

Compared to many other benchtop lathes, they have greater stock-holding capacity both in swing and distance between centers, allowing you to turn larger bowls and longer spindles.

Each has an extra-long 8" tool rest that reduces the need for frequent repositioning, and mounts on a non-slip banjo.

They use a 1" x 8 tpi spindle and a #2MT headstock and tailstock for compatibility with a wide range of standard accessories.

All are backed by a 5-year manufacturer's warranty.

 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 

The 1/2-horsepower 70-100 mini lathe (A) is a good
choice for the novice turner or those who predominantly
work on small- to medium-scale pieces. At 89 lb, it is
stable yet relatively easy to move and store, with a
convenient carry handle at the headstock end.

It has a 12" swing and a maximum distance between
centers of 16". To select from six speeds (430, 810, 1230,
1810, 2670 and 3600 rpm), you simply move the drive
belt between stepped pulleys.

The 3/4-horsepower 70-1218VS midi lathe (B) offers a good balance between power, capacity and portability.

Though more powerful than the mini, at 70-1/2 lb, it is even easier to move around the workshop (outside the workshop, too – backyard turners, take note!). It has a 12" swing and a maximum distance between centers of 18".

It also has a digital controller that makes setting spindle speed quick and convenient – just select a range (450 to 1110 rpm, 960 to 2400 rpm or 1400 to 3500 rpm) by moving the drive belt between pulleys, then turn a knob to dial in a precise speed within that range (shown on an LCD screen).

There's no need to stop the lathe once you've begun working, so you can go from roughing out a piece straight through to finish-turning and sanding without interruption.

The 1-horsepower 70-220VSR midi lathe (C) is suited to heavier work. It weighs 115 lb and has a 12-1/2" swing and a maximum distance between centers of 20".

It uses a non-slip poly V-belt to efficiently transmit power and a motor controller that automatically increases torque to maintain the speed as load is applied.

Its digital controller makes setting spindle speed quick and convenient – just select a range (250 to 750 rpm, 550 to 1650 rpm or 1300 to 3850 rpm) by moving the drive belt between pulleys, then turn a knob to dial in a precise speed within that range (shown on an LCD screen).

There's no need to stop the lathe once you've begun working, so you can go from roughing out a piece straight through to finish-turning and sanding without interruption.

At the flick of a switch, you can reverse rotation to sand down lifted fibers for a finer surface finish.

All three models are fitted with a graduated indexing head for locking the spindle at regular increments (30° on the mini lathe and 15° on the midi models).

Each comes with a four-spur drive center, a knock-out bar, a self-ejecting live center, spindle-locking wrench(es), a 3" faceplate, and rear-mounted holders that keep the accessories within easy reach.

Other sizes of tool rest, along with a 6" faceplate for heavy,
large-diameter blanks, are offered separately.
