The 2012 Tool Guide Editors went on a search for the Heavy-Duty Benchtop Lathes to look for in 2012. Each lathe was put through a series of tests including Starting RPM, RPM w/Resistance, Speed Loss and Torque tests. At the conclusion of testing, the Editors decided that "Delta's power and features stand out from the crowd" and subsequently awarded the DELTA 46-460 it's coveted Editor's Choice - Best Overall Award. Powerful 1 HP max, 1,725 RPM Motor. Large 12-1/2" 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 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. Over Headstock On/Off switch provides easy in use access. Turning long spindles require either a longer tool rest or the user to continually move the short tool rest. Turning short work requires a short spindle; the long spindle will not allow the turner to get close enough to the piece. On board storage for easy access to adjustment tools. Heavy-duty, steel knockout bar. Includes 6" and 10" tool rests, steel knock out bar, live and spur centers and wrenches. CSA Listed.
