This lathe combines the best features of larger lathes – power, capacity and capability with state-of-the-art technology to make your turning more efficient, fun and safer. Great for those who need all the workshop space they can get. The lathe can be configured with a compact footprint or using the bed extension (an optional accessory) the Orion can be made longer to suit longer projects as needed.

The swivel head and articulated Outrigger Accessory (sold separately), together with the flexible bed configuration, means that even when turning large bowls (29”), you are still turning in the same compact area. With no pulleys or belts to vibrate, the Award-Winning DVR Direct Drive Motor is incredibly smooth and delivers intelligent control to your turning experience.
