The purpose of safety symbols is to attract your attention to possible hazardous conditions. This
manual uses a series of symbols and signal words intended to convey the level of importance of the
safety messages. The progression of symbols is described below. Remember that safety messages by
themselves do not eliminate danger and are not a substitute for proper accident prevention measures—this responsibility is ultimately up to the operator!
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
WILL result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
COULD result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
MAY result in minor or moderate injury.
NOTICE
This symbol is used to alert the user to useful information about
proper operation of the equipment or a situation that may cause

Standard Machinery Safety Instructions
OWNER’S MANUAL. Read and understand this
owner’s manual BEFORE using machine.
ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT INJURY RISKS. You can
be shocked, burned, or killed by touching live
electrical components or improperly grounded
machinery. To reduce this risk, only allow an
electrician or qualified service personnel to
do electrical installation or repair work, and
always disconnect power before accessing or
exposing electrical equipment.
TRAINED OPERATORS ONLY. Untrained operators
have a higher risk of being hurt or killed. Only
allow trained/supervised people to use this
machine. When machine is not being used,
disconnect power, remove switch keys, or
lock-out machine to prevent unauthorized
use—especially around children. Make
workshop kid proof!
DISCONNECT POWER FIRST. Always disconnect

distracted.
-2-
Model W1752 (Mfg. Since 8/12)
WEARING PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear
clothing, apparel, or jewelry that can become
entangled in moving parts. Always tie back
or cover long hair. Wear non-slip footwear to
avoid accidental slips, which could cause loss
of workpiece control.
FORCING MACHINERY. Do not force machine. It
will do the job safer and better at the rate for
which it was designed.
NEVER STAND ON MACHINE. Serious injury may
occur if machine is tipped or if the cutting
tool is unintentionally contacted.
HAZARDOUS DUST. Dust created while using
machinery may cause cancer, birth defects,
or long-term respiratory damage. Be aware of
dust hazards associated with each workpiece
material, and always wear a NIOSH-approved
respirator to reduce your risk.
STABLE MACHINE. Unexpected movement during
operation greatly increases risk of injury or
loss of control. Before starting, verify machine
is stable and mobile base (if used) is locked.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult
this owner’s manual or the manufacturer for
recommended accessories. Using improper
accessories will increase risk of serious injury.
HEARING PROTECTION. Always wear hearing
protection when operating or observing
loud machinery. Extended exposure to this
noise without hearing protection can cause
permanent hearing loss.
UNATTENDED OPERATION. To reduce the risk
of accidental injury, turn machine OFF and
ensure all moving parts completely stop
before walking away. Never leave machine
running while unattended.
REMOVE ADJUSTING TOOLS. Tools left on
machinery can become dangerous projectiles
upon startup. Never leave chuck keys,
wrenches, or any other tools on machine.
Always verify removal before starting!
MAINTAIN WITH CARE. Follow all maintenance
instructions and lubrication schedules to
keep machine in good working condition. A
machine that is improperly maintained could
malfunction, leading to serious personal injury
or death.

balance at all times when operating machine.
Do not overreach! Avoid awkward hand
positions that make workpiece control difficult
or increase the risk of accidental injury.
MAINTAIN POWER CORDS. When disconnecting
cord-connected machines from power, grab
and pull the plug—NOT the cord. Pulling the
cord may damage the wires inside, resulting
in a short. Do not handle cord/plug with wet
hands. Avoid cord damage by keeping it away
from heated surfaces, high traffic areas, harsh
chemicals, and wet/damp locations.
CHILDREN & BYSTANDERS. Keep children and
bystanders at a safe distance from the work
area. Stop using machine if they become a
distraction.
GUARDS & COVERS. Guards and covers reduce
accidental contact with moving parts or flying
debris—make sure they are properly installed,
undamaged, and working correctly.

Additional Safety for Wood Lathes
MAIN INJURY HAZARDS: Death or crushing injury from getting entangled in rotating spindle or
workpiece; death, blindness, or broken bones from being struck by a workpiece that breaks
apart or comes loose during rotation, turning tool kickback, or flying wood chips. To minimize
your risk of these hazards, always heed the following warning information:
INTEGRITY OF STOCK. Verify each workpiece
is free of knots, splits, nails, or foreign material
to ensure it can safely rotate on spindle without
breaking apart or causing turning tool kickback.
EYE/FACE PROTECTION. Always wear a face
shield and safety glasses when operating lathe.
PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear gloves, necktie
or loose clothing. Keep keep long hair away from
rotating spindle.
WORKPIECE PREPARATION. Before mounting, cut
off waste portions with a bandsaw or other tool
to ensure workpiece has no large edges to catch
turning tool, and it will rotate without dangerous
wobbling.
SPEED RATES. Select correct spindle speed for
workpiece size, type, shape, and condition. Use
low speeds when roughing or when turning large,
long, or non-concentric workpieces. Allow spindle
to reach full speed before turning.
SECURING LOCKS. Verify tool rest, headstock,
and tailstock are secure before turning lathe ON.
NEW SETUPS. Test each new setup by starting
spindle rotation at the lowest speed and standing
to the side of the lathe until workpiece reaches
full speed and you can verify safe rotation.
SECURING WORKPIECE. An improperly secured
workpiece can fly off spindle with deadly force.
Use proven setup techniques and always verify
workpiece is well-secured before starting lathe.
Only use high-quality fasteners with non-tapered
heads for faceplate attachment.
ROUGHING. Use correct tool. Take light cuts, use
low speeds, and firmly support tool with both
hands.
TOOL SUPPORT. An improperly supported tool
may be grabbed or ejected. Adjust tool rest
approximately 1⁄4” away from workpiece and 1⁄8”
above workpiece center line to provide proper
support for turning tool. Firmly hold turning tool
with both hands against tool rest.
SHARP TOOLS. Only use sharp turning tools—
they cut with less resistance than dull tools. Dull
turning tools can catch or grab and pull your
hands into the rotating workpiece.
STOPPING SPINDLE. Always allow spindle to
completely stop on its own. Never put hands or
another object on spinning workpiece.
TOOL KICKBACK. Occurs when turning tool is
ejected from workpiece with great force, striking
operator or bystanders. Commonly caused by poor
workpiece selection/preparation, improper tool
usage, or improper machine setup or tool rest
adjustment.
ADJUSTMENTS/MAINTENANCE. Make sure wood
lathe is turned OFF, disconnected from power,
and all moving parts are completely stopped
before doing adjustments or maintenance.
ADJUSTMENT TOOLS. Remove all chuck keys,
wrenches, and adjustment tools before turning
lathe ON. A tool left on the lathe can become a
deadly projectile when spindle is started.
MEASURING WORKPIECE. Only measure
workpiece after it has stopped. Trying to measure
a spinning workpiece increases entanglement risk.
SAFE CLEARANCES. Before starting spindle,
verify workpiece has adequate clearance by handrotating it through its entire range of motion.
SANDING/POLISHING. To reduce entanglement
risk, remove tool rest before sanding. Never
completely wrap sandpaper around workpiece.

A power supply circuit includes all electrical equipment
between the breaker box or fuse panel in the building
and the machine. The power supply circuit used for
this machine must be sized to safely handle the fullload current drawn from the machine for an extended
period of time. (If this machine is connected to a circuit
protected by fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a machine
draws at 100% of the rated output power. On machines
with multiple motors, this is the amperage drawn by the
largest motor or sum of all motors and electrical devices
that might operate at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 120V...................6 Amps
Circuit Requirements
This machine is prewired to operate on a 120V power
supply circuit that has a verified ground and meets the
following requirements:
Circuit Type..................... 120V, 60 Hz, Single-Phase
Circuit Size............................................. 15 Amps

NOTICE
The circuit requirements listed in this
manual apply to a dedicated circuit—
where only one machine will be running
at a time. If this machine will be
connected to a shared circuit where
multiple machines will be running at the
same time, consult with an electrician
to ensure that the circuit is properly
sized for safe operation.
Model W1752 (Mfg. Since 8/12)
Grounding Requirements
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event of certain
types of malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric current to travel—in
order to reduce the risk of electric shock.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding wire will
increase the risk of electric shock. The wire with green
insulation (with/without yellow stripes) is the equipmentgrounding wire. If repair or replacement of the power
cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipmentgrounding wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel
if you do not understand these grounding requirements,
or if you are in doubt about whether the tool is
properly grounded. If you ever notice that a cord or
plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and
immediately replace it with a new one.
For 120V Connection
This machine is equipped with a power cord that has an
equipment-grounding wire and NEMA 5-15 grounding plug.
The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle
(see =`^li\) that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord with
this machine. Extension cords cause voltage drop, which
may damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases with longer extension cords
and smaller gauge sizes (higher gauge numbers indicate
smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine must contain a
ground wire, match the required plug and receptacle, and
meet the following requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size at 120V....................... 14 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).................50 ft.

Machine Placement
•
Floor Load: Some workbenches may require
additional reinforcement to support both
the machine and the operator. Make sure
you take these precautions.
•
Working Clearances: Consider existing and
anticipated needs, size of material to be
processed through the machine, and space
for auxiliary stands, work tables or other
machinery when establishing a location for
your lathe.
•
Lighting: Lighting should be bright enough
to eliminate shadow and prevent eye strain.
•
Electrical: Electrical circuits must be
dedicated or large enough to handle
amperage requirements. Outlets must be
located near each machine, so power or
extension cords are clear of high-traffic
areas. Follow local electrical codes for
proper installation of new lighting, outlets,
or circuits.
Cleaning Machine
The bed and other unpainted parts of your lathe
are coated with a waxy grease that protects
them from corrosion during shipment. Clean this
grease off with a solvent cleaner or citrus-based
degreaser. DO NOT use chlorine-based solvents
such as brake parts cleaner or acetone—if you
happen to splash some onto a painted surface,
you will ruin the finish.
NEVER use gasoline or
other petroleum-based
solvents to clean with.
Most have low flash
points, which make them
extremely
flammable.
A risk of explosion and
burning exists if these
products are used. Serious
personal injury may occur
if this warning is ignored!
ALWAYS work in wellventilated areas far from
possible ignition sources
when using solvents to
clean machinery. Many
solvents are toxic when
inhaled or ingested. Use
care when disposing
of waste rags and
towels to be sure they
DO NOT create fire or
environmental hazards.
The Model W1752 is a
heavy machine. DO NOT
over-exert yourself while
unpacking or moving your
machine—get assistance.
MAKE your shop “child
safe.” Ensure that your
workplace is inaccessible
to youngsters by closing
and locking all entrances
when you are away. NEVER
allow untrained visitors in
your shop when assembling, adjusting or operating equipment.

Selecting Turning Tools
Lathe tools come in a variety of shapes and sizes and
usually fall into five major categories.
OPERATIONS
•
Gouges—Mainly used for rough cutting, detail cutting, and cove profiles. The rough gouge is a hollow, double-ground tool with a round nose, and the
detail gouge is a hollow, double-ground tool with
either a round or pointed nose. Figure 14 shows an
example of a gouge.
•
Skew Chisel—A very versatile tool that can be used
for planing, squaring, V-cutting, beading, and parting off. The skew chisel is flat, double-ground with
one side higher than the other (usually at an angle
of 20-40˚). Figure 15 shows an example of a skew
chisel.
•
Scrapers—Mainly used where access for other tools
is limited, such as hollowing operations. This is a
flat, double-ground tool that comes in a variety
of profiles (Round Nose, Spear Point, Square Nose,
etc.) to match many different contours. Figure 16
shows an example of a round nose scraper.
•
Parting Tools—Used for sizing and cutting off work.
This is a flat tool with a sharp pointed nose that
may be single- or double-ground. Figure 17 shows
an example of a parting tool.
•
Specialty Tools—These are the unique, special function tools to aid in hollowing, bowl making, cutting
profiles, etc.

Spindle Turning
Spindle turning (Figure 18) is the operation performed
when a workpiece is mounted between the headstock and
the tailstock.
To set up a spindle turning operation, do these steps:
1. Mark both ends of your workpiece by drawing diagonal lines from corner to corner. The intersection
point of these lines will show you the center of your
workpiece. See Figure 19 for details.
2. Using a wood mallet, tap the point of the spur
center into the center of the workpiece, so that it
leaves a center mark, then remove the spur center.
3. Using a 1/8" drill bit, drill a 3/16" deep hole at the
center mark.
Figure 18. Typical spindle turning operation.
4. Cut the corners off your workpiece if it is over 2" x
2" to make turning safer and easier.
5. Drive the spur center into the center of the
workpiece with a wood mallet to embed it at least
1
/4", as shown in Figure 20.

6. With the workpiece still attached, insert the spur
center into the headstock spindle.
7. With the live center installed in the tailstock, slide
the tailstock toward the workpiece until the live
center touches the workpiece centerpoint, then lock
the tailstock in this position.
8. Use the quill handwheel to push the live center into
the workpiece at least a 1⁄4".
Do not press the workpiece too firmly
with the tailstock or the bearings will
bind and overheat. Likewise, do not
adjust too loosely or the workpiece
will spin off the lathe. Use good judgement. Serious personal injury could
result if care is not taken.
9. Position the tool rest approximately 1⁄4" away from
the workpiece and approximately 1⁄8" above the center line, as shown in Figure 21.
10. Test the setup by hand turning the workpiece to
make sure there is enough clearance all the way
around before starting.

•
Use the slowest speed when starting or stopping the
lathe, and when rough cutting.
•
Select the right speed for the size of workpiece you
are turning. Use slower speeds for large workpieces
(4" diameter and over); use the middle range speeds
for medium sized workpieces (2" to 4" diameter); and
use faster speeds for small sized workpieces (under
2" in diameter).
•
Keep the turning tool on the tool rest the ENTIRE
time that it is in contact with the workpiece.
•
Learn the correct techniques for each tool you will
use. If you are unsure, read books or magazines
about lathe techniques and seek training from experienced users.
•
Turn the lathe OFF immediately if the workpiece
vibrates excessively. Check to make sure the
workpiece is centered and balanced. Remove the
workpiece and trim excess waste off corners with a
bandsaw or table saw to reduce vibration. Make sure
workpiece is securely attached in the setup.

Faceplate Turning
Faceplate turning (Figure 22) is when a workpiece is
mounted to the 3" faceplate, which is mounted to the
headstock spindle. This type of turning is usually done
with open-faced workpieces like bowls.
To mount your workpiece to the faceplate, do these
steps:
1. Find the center of your workpiece in the same manner as when spindle turning.
2. Cut off the corners of the workpiece.
3. Center the faceplate on the workpiece and attach it
through the faceplate holes with wood screws.
4. Thread the faceplate onto the headstock spindle and
tighten securely.
Figure 22. Typical faceplate turning operation.
GOOD
BAD
Note: If screws cannot be placed in the workpiece, then a
backing block can be glued to the workpiece and attached
to the faceplate with screws.
To mount your workpiece to a backing block, do these
steps:
Figure 23. Correct and incorrect
screw types for mounting faceplate to
workpiece.
1. Make the backing block (Figure 24) from a piece of
scrap wood that is flat on both sides.
2. Locate and mark the center of both the workpiece
and the backing block.
3. Drill a 1⁄4" hole in the center of the backing block.
4. Glue the center of the backing block to the center
of the workpiece (look through the drilled hole to
line up centers), clamp the backing block to the
workpiece, and wait for the glue to cure according
to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
-23-
Figure 24.Typical example of mounting
faceplate to a backing block.
OPERATIONS
NOTICE: Only use tap screws or wood screws with nontapered heads (Figure 23) to attach the faceplate to the
workpiece. Do NOT use drywall screws or screws with
tapered heads because these can split the faceplate, or
the screws may snap off during operation.
W1752 Owner's Manual (Mfg. 1/07+)
