Record Power Maxi 1 Heavy Duty Woodturning Lathe – Review

At our recent woodworking event held at our Cardiff branch we were visited by representatives from Record Power. During the show they demonstrated some of their machinery.  Our  machinery expert Dave Union was on hand to review some of the machines.

Second up is the Maxi 1 Lathe :

Record Power MAXI-1 Woodturning Lathe
On display at our Cardiff Showroom

Record has combined with Woodfast to produce a fine machine for the serious woodturner. The machine is very heavily built with extensive use of cast iron throughout. With electronic speed control this allows the machine to be operated simply by the user at a speed which is comfortable.  People attending our woodworking show saw the machine being demonstrated with little or no vibration.

The key features were the swivel head,  heavy duty cast iron stand and legs, electronic variable speed driven by six pulleys, sturdy 1” diameter toolrest spindle and a switch that can be mounted anywhere on the machine.

Other features are 37” between centres, 20” swing over the bed, maximum bowl diameter 30”, speeds from 50-3850rpm and a 1.5hp motor.

The Record Maxi 1 is currently displayed on the machinery floor at our Cardiff Branch.
