Delta 46-460 12-1/2 Inch Variable Speed Midi-Lathe
Powerful 1 HP max, 1,725 RPM Motor.


Powerful 1 HP max, 1,725 RPM Motor. Large 12 1/2 in. swing capacity provides the largest capacity in its class. Electronic Variable Speed with three-pulley speed ranges provide the required speeds needed to turn a project without changing belt position. Forward and Reversing function allows the turner to achieve a superior finish. 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 this super smooth finish. With our competitors the turner would need to remount the work piece backward to achieve this dual rotation. This is time consuming and often impossible. With the Delta 46-460 it is a simple flip of the switch. Patented belt tensioning system for easy and quick speed changes and sets the belt at the correct tension every time for maximum power transfer and longer tool life. 6 groove belt provides superior power to turn large objects. Indexing pin to lock the head stock spindle in 24 different locations for fluting and other decorative applications. All cast-iron construction provides stability and is extremely durable.
