Features, Power and Performance Second to None
The brand new Coronet Herald Heavy Duty Cast Iron Electronic Variable Speed Lathe (#16007) from Record Power features innovative design solutions – like state-of-the-art 1HP motor, full electronic variable speed from 95 to 3,890 RPM, and 360° rotating and repositionable headstock – that extend its capabilities, features and performance far beyond anything a lathe of this size has been capable of before. Turn bowls up to 21″ diameter and 20″ between centers (an extension bed is available).
Lightweight and Compact Scroll Chuck Package
The SC3 Geared Scroll Chuck Package (#61062) is designed for the woodturner that wants a premium chuck with no compromise in performance and at the best possible price. It uses the same scroll and jaw carriers as the SC4 and has a smaller body because the scroll is engaged through a hole in the side of the body using a traditional chuck key. Includes deep wood screw, 50 mm standard jaws and 3.5” faceplate.
Professional Geared Scroll Chuck Package
For the demanding woodturner the SC4 Geared Scroll Chuck Package (#62063) is designed to hold large work pieces yet possesses the precision and compactness to handle more delicate work. This model features an enclosed back with full indexing plate and has pinions driven by a long ball ended hex key to make access easy, even when large work pieces are mounted. This chuck is an insert model (the relevant choice of insert is included in the package) which means it’s easily future proofed against upgrades and can be used on lathes with different spindle threads.
Jaws for Smaller Spigots and Recesses
These 35mm Standard Jaws (#62321) feature the same dovetail profile in expansion and the superb grip of the hawk beak design on contraction as the larger 50mm jaws. Designed specifically for smaller spigots and recesses, this set is incredibly versatile and makes a great addition to any turner’s tool collection.
Versatile Standard Chuck Jaws
These 50 mm Standard Jaws (#62313), which feature a specialised dovetail profile in expansion and superb grip of the hawk beak design on contraction, are a great all-round set, capable of bowl work to a good size and also spigot turning.
Jaws for Medium Size Bowls
Featuring a deep body and internal teeth to improve versatility with a specialised dovetail profile, these 100 mm Dovetail and Deep Gripper Jaws (#62329) are ideal for turning large bowls, green timber and hollow vessels. The outer dovetail jaws are ideal for large bowls or platters, particularly when gripping onto a spigot and the deep internal toothed body is ideal for large spigots of hollow vessels.
Jaws for Large Bowls
Featuring a specialised dovetail profile, the 130 mm Dovetail Jaws (#62317) are ideal for turning bowls up to 30″. They also feature a reverse dovetail for a contracting grip on large spigots.
Jaws for Heavy Bowls and Vases
For heavy bowls and vases these new 75 mm Heavy Bowl and Gripper Jaws (#62322) are ideal. The wide front face provides a good register for the base of the bowl or vase and the deep toothed body provides strong grip on the spigot. The internal gripper can also be used on smaller rough green timber. Also featuring an external dovetail in expansion, they can be used for large platters. A truly versatile and solid jaw set.
Multi-Purpose Long Nose Jaws
These Long Nose Jaws (#62323) feature internal and external dovetails for bowl work. The deep internal grip is versatile but the main benefit of these jaws is to project the work away from the chuck, allowing good tool access to the base of the timber for cleaning and shaping.
Secure Spigot Grip for Smaller Work
The new Pin Jaws with 9 mm Bore (#62327) have been improved by squaring the external shoulder to allow work pieces to properly register against the back of the jaws. This is ideal for gripping pieces such as pepper, salt grinders, finials, and lace bobbins. This set is ideal for miniature turning and to grip work pieces internally without excessive damage or marking.
Strong Internal Grip for Smaller Items
The Mini Spigot Jaws with 13 mm Bore (#62336) have extra screw hole profiles and added teeth to the outside that provide tremendous grip for when this area will not be visible in the finished work piece. This set has a 13 mm internal diameter, making it ideal for turning strong spigots on knobs and handles, again adding to their versatility.
Accurately Drill Pen Blanks
These Pen Jaws (#62337) eliminate the need for a drill press. They deliver much more accurate results and their deep grip to all four sides ensures incredible holding power. Drilling on the lathe means the feed speed of the drill bit is under your complete control, meaning a superior finish can be achieved on a wide range of materials. These jaws are also useful for working on small finials and similar projects as in addition to their strong grip, the work piece is moved forward from the chuck, allowing greater access.
Hold Medium Turned Blanks
This 87mm (3.5″) Faceplate Ring (#62572) is ideal for holding medium sized bowl blanks, especially when you want to be able to remove and remount the blank. Due to its strong hold it’s also suitable for out of balance timber. The ring is held to the chuck using the standard 50 mm jaw set (which comes standard with all Record Power chuck packages).
Hold Large Turned Blanks
This 126mm (5″) Faceplate Ring (#62574) is ideal for holding large bowl blanks and due to its strong hold is also suitable for more out of balance timber. It is held to the chuck using the standard 50 mm jaw set (which comes complete with all Record Power chuck packages.)
Remount Blanks Up to 200mm
Remounting jaws are incredibly popular due to their flexibility. These Remounting Jaws Mini – Up to 200 mm Bowl (#62356) work in both contraction and expansion modes and can be fitted behind other jaw sets to create custom setups to make turning more efficient. The soft stoppers are designed to hold without causing damage, making them ideal for remounting finished or partly finished objects for further work.
Remount Blanks Up to 275mm
The Remounting Jaws Mega with Buffer Kit (#62377) can be used with lathes that have a 12” swing capacity and are capable of holding bowls up to 275mm in contraction mode. They work in both contraction and expansion modes and can be fitted behind other jaw sets to create custom set-ups to make turning more efficient. The eight soft stoppers are designed to hold without causing damage, making them ideal for remounting finished or partly finished objects for further work.
Make Your Own Custom Jaws
These RP Plastic Soft Jaws (#62378) are designed specifically to be cut with standard turning tools. They can be easily shaped to create custom jaws to fulfil exacting requirements and offer excellent grip without marking the work piece. Made of nylon.
