Remember when you could turn your own pens. Fill your house with as many pens as you can with the WEN 8 in. x 12 in. Variable Speed Mini Wood Lathe. Adjust the variable speed anywhere from 750° to 3200° rotations per minute. The WEN 8 in. x 12 in. Variable Speed Benchtop Wood Lathe features an MT1 spindle and tailstock taper to tightly grip workpieces, 2 tool rests (4-1/2 in. and 7 in.) to provide needed support for chisels and tools during operation and a 3.2 Amp motor to keep things turning. The easy-to-use lever clamping system makes adjustments to both the tool rest and the tailstock simple and precise. The WEN Wood Lathe also includes a flat wrench, a headstock spur center, a tailstock cup center, a knockout rod and a 2.3 in. faceplate for non-spindle workpieces. And, because its a WEN product, your lathe comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer help line. Remember when you could turn pens, chess pieces and more. Remember WEN.
