SETTING-UP YOUR WOOD LATHE
FIGURE 2
Your wood lathe should be mounted onto a stable and level workbench in a workshop with ample light to work in. Once the wood lathe is
set-up on your workbench, it is now time to set your lathe level to your workbench. Place a level on the bed and adjust the corner rubber feet
until the wood lathe is perfectly level with your workbench, once the rubber feet are adjusted, make sure to tighten nuts. If you prefer, fix the
wood lathe permanently to the workbench by removing the 4 corner rubber feet and then using bolts and nuts instead (not supplied). Very
little assembly is required, only knobs and/or handles and centers need to be assembled to the lathe (see #’s 6, 7, 13, 15, 17 Fig.1).

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
PLUGGING IN & TURNING ON/OFF
WARNING!
ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS MUST BE DONE BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY! ALL ADJUSTMENTS OR REPAIRS MUST BE DONE WITH THE MACHINE DISCONNECTED FROM THE POWER SOURCE.
FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY!
POWER SUPPLY
WARNING: YOUR WOOD LATHE MUST BE CONNECTED TO A 120V,
15-AMP, BRANCH CIRCUIT. FAILURE TO CONNECT IN THIS WAY
CAN RESULT IN INJURY FROM SHOCK OR FIRE.
Your wood lathe must be properly grounded. Not all outlets are properly
grounded. If you are not sure if your outlet is properly grounded, have it
checked by a qualified electrician.
WARNING: IF NOT PROPERLY GROUNDED, THIS WOOD LATHE
CAN CAUSE ELECTRICAL SHOCK, PARTICULARLY WHEN USED IN
DAMP LOCATIONS. TO AVOID SHOCK OR FIRE, IF THE POWER
CORD IS WORN OR DAMAGED IN ANY WAY, HAVE IT REPLACED
IMMEDIATELY.
GROUNDING
This wood lathe must be grounded. If it should malfunction or
breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
current, to reduce the risk of electric shock. This drill press is equipped
with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.

120V OPERATION
As received from the factory, your wood lathe is ready to run for 120V
operation and is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet and a
plug which looks like the one illustrated in Fig.3.
WARNING: DO NOT USE A TWO-PRONG ADAPTOR FOR THEY ARE
NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL CODES AND ORDINANCES.
NEVER USE IN CANADA.
EXTENSION CORDS
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of power. Use the
following table to determine the minimum wire size (A.W.G-American Wire
Gauge) extension cord. Use only 3-wire extension cords which have
3-prong grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles which accept the
tool’s plug.
For circuits that are further away from the electrical circuit box, the wire size
must be increased proportionately in order to deliver ample voltage to the
motor. Refer to Fig. 4 for wire length and size.

FIGURE 5
ON/OFF SWITCH
Warning! Make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position before
plugging into a wall outlet.
Your wood lathe comes with a safety switch (A) with
removeable key (B) Fig.5 to prevent unauthorized use. To
start the lathe, first make sure the key is in place and then pull
the switch out. To stop the lathe, push the switch in. Remove
the key and store in a safe place until the next use.
ADJUSTMENTS & OPERATION
MOUNTING 3” FACEPLATE
Warning! Unplug wood lathe before attempting to mount or remove
faceplate.
Your wood lathe comes with a standard 3” faceplate (A) Fig.6. This faceplate
allows you to fasten your workpiece to the spindle when it is impossible to fix
the workpiece inbetween two centers.
MOUNTING AND REMOVING CENTERS FROM HEADSTOCK AND
TAILSTOCK
Warning! Unplug wood lathe before attempting to mount or remove any
center.
FIGURE 6
The spur center (A) Fig.7 supplied with your wood lathe is designed to be
fitted into the tapered headstock spindle (B). The spur center can be fitted by
hand but first make sure the spur center shank and spindle hole are
perfectly clean. It is recommended to use a solvent and a clean cloth to clean
the shank and spindle hole.
To remove the spur center from the headstock spindle, a knock-out bar (C) is
supplied for this purpose. Insert the knock out bar through the outboard side
of the spindle as shown and knock out the spur center. Hold the spur center
before knocking it out to prevent it from dropping.
The live center (A) Fig.8 supplied with your wood lathe is designed to be
fitted into the tapered tailstock quill (B). The live center can be fiited by hand
but first make sure the live center shank and quill hole are perfectly clean. It
is recommended to use a solvent and a clean cloth to clean the shank and
spindle hole.
FIGURE 7
To remove the live center from the tailstock quill, simply retract the tailstock
quill using handwheel (C) until the live center becomes free. Hold the live
center before attempting to remove it to prevent it from dropping.
TOOL REST BASE AND TOOL REST ADJUSTMENTS
The tool rest base (A) Fig.9 and the tool rest (B) can be moved along the
lathe bedway to any desired position between the centers. To move the tool
rest base, lift locking lever (C) and slide the tool rest base. Once in position
lower the locking lever to lock the tool rest base in place.
FIGURE 8
Now that the tool rest base is in proper position, the tool rest height must be
adjusted. The top edge of the tool rest should be adjusted to 1/8” above the
mid-point of both centers. To adjust the height, loosen lock handle (D). Raise
or lower the tool rest to the mid-point of both centers and retighten lock
handle. The tool rest base includes 2 threaded holes, one on each side,
which allows the operator to choose which side is more convenient to install
the lock handle (D) and avoids hand obstruction during certain turning
operations.

ADJUSTMENTS & OPERATION
TAILSTOCK ADJUSTMENTS
Before moving tailstock, make sure the bedway has been lubricated with paste
wax or Spray Coat Dry film lubricant (King accessory model: KM-040).
The tailstock (A) Fig.10 is moved along the lathe bedway to support the other
end of your workpiece using a live center (B). To move the tailstock, lift locking
lever (C) and slide tailstock. Lower locking lever to lock in place. The tailstock
quill (D) moves in and out by turning handwheel (E) and is locked into place
using lock handle (E).
SPINDLE SPEED ADJUSTMENT
Warning! Unplug the wood lathe from its power source before changing
spindle speed.
Your wood lathe provides 6 spindle speeds (480, 1270, 1960, 2730, 3327,
4023 RPM). The speed selection is determined by the type of operation. For
small diameter workpieces, a high spindle speed is recommended.
FIGURE 10
To change the spindle speed, loosen safety cover lock handle (A) Fig.11. This
will allow you to lift and remove safety cover (B) to gain access to the pulleys
and belt.
Next the belt tension must be released in order to change the belt positioning
on the pulley steps. Loosen tension lock knob (C) and swing the side cover (D)
over to gain access to the motor pulley. Lift tension lever (E) to release belt
tension. Now you are ready to change the belt positioning in order to change
the spindle speed. Select the desired speed and notice the required belt
positioning as shown in the pulley safety cover (B) label. Shift the belt to its
new position around the spindle pulley and motor pulley, turning the spindle
handwheel to shift the belt position will make the task easier.
Retension the belt by applying upward pressure on the tension lever,
reposition side cover and tighten tension lock knob. Replace the pulley
safety cover and secure with lock handle.
WOOD LATHE OPERATIONS
For information on wood lathe operations such as spindle turning, faceplate
turning, various cutting and shaping technics, consult some of the many
sources at your local library or book store. We recommend having an
experienced woodworker show you basic tips to get started.
MAINTAINING YOUR WOOD LATHE
Warning! Unplug power cord from power source before making any
maintenance to your wood lathe.
There are a few simply ways of maintaining your wood lathe to ensure long life.
1) After any operation, remove all wood chips found on the bed and
thoroughly clean the wood lathe.
2) Lubricate all sliding surfaces regularly.
3) It is strongly recommended to keep the motor free of saw dust. An
accumulation could block motor ventilation and could cause motor damage.
