Wadkin RS Lathe

The Wadkin RS Lathe has a proved record for accuracy, convenience and efficiency. It has been installed in hundreds of the leading Engineers Pattern Shops throughout the world, where it has proved the ideal lathe for the general run of wood turning. Recent refinements in design have added to its value as a machine tool, by providing increased rigidity for the heavier classes of work, and ensuring greater convenience in operation.

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down from the cutting edge to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
