Excelsior Mini Lathe with 3-Piece Rockler Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set

Excelsior 5-Speed Mini Lathe

With solid cast-iron construction, a robust 1/2 hp motor and a precision-machined live center, the features of the Excelsior 5-Speed Mini Lathe rival those found in much larger lathes. It can turn bowls of almost 10'' in diameter and spindles up to 17-3/4'' in length, making it perfect for chair legs, small table legs and an endless array of decorative turnings. A convenient door provides easy access to the belt, along with 5 different speeds: 760, 1100, 1600, 2200 and 3200 RPM. Cast-iron body provides mass for minimal vibration, stable turning and maximum durability. To increase your spindle capacity to 38-1/2'', just use the optional Mini Lathe Bed Extension (#32307, sold separately).


Rockler 3-Piece Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set

At only 9-1/2'' long, these tools are the perfect size for turning pens, bottle stoppers and other small items. Carbide cutters can be easily rotated to expose a fresh edge. The set includes one high speed steel 1/8'' parting tool, and two tools with replaceable carbide cutters: a 1/2'' round cutter and a 1/2'' square cutter with a 2'' radius that produces an exceptionally smooth finish cut. Handles are solid ash encased in thick, molded rubber for excellent ergonomics and a sure grip.

Features:

  • Total overall length of Pen Turning Tools is approximately 9-1/2''.
  • Ash handles are 6-1/2'' long from the butt of the handle to the top of the ferrule.
  • Length of the shaft is approximately 3''.
  • Round cutter head is used for roughing out the blank and general turning.
  • The radius square cutter is ideal for smooth finishing cuts, where it's slight radius helps reduce the risk of gouging.
  • Use the 1/8'' parting tool for parting off, and for creating grooves.
  • Carbide cutters are not interchangeable between the different tools.
  • When replacing the carbide insert for the Radius Square Cutter, use SR1 47377) only. This tool will not accept a standard square cutter.

Nice Lathe for Beginers
Picked this unit up after years of various woodworking activity and looking to expand my skills. This Lathe is very solid and runs well with excellent spindle alignment. Bought the bed extension for full length capability and can't wait to get this set-up. Will be purchasing additional cutter tools as I expand into this new journey... Yes... it's entry level for price but good quality without having to invest $1000's for entering this woodworking category.... Highly recommend for anyone considering to start working with a lathe without spending a lot of money... Great deal during the Black Friday event since the tool came with a mini-3 tool carbide tip set for Pen turning... also picked up the Nova G3 Comet II reversible chuck at a great price... Looking forward to many projects and learning new skills with this lathe...

I've been looking at the Excelsior for a long time after doing some research and finding that it seem to fit my needs of an entry level lathe; a balance of quality/accuracy and cost. It may not have all the bells and whistles of some of the other mini lathes on the market but I'm not sure how much I'll use it outside of one very important project I need it for so I didn't want to over invest right out the gate.

Can this lathe accept a Jacobs chuck for drilling holes?

Is it 240 voltage?
Rosli A on Jan 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This lathe operates on 110 VAC.
Can this Lathe be bolted down to a wooden work stand?
Willard H on Jan 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is heavy enough on its own to withstand a large / @ 9" dia. bowl stock. I did make wood brackets that fit over and around the base, over the rubber feet and screwed them to the stand. Works great !
