Features

750-Watt 220 Volt Motor

The Rivolver CWI-WL325 is actually powered by a 4.8-amp, 750 watt (1 HP) three phase industrial motor controlled by an advanced computerized inverter system that converts the three-phase power motor to run on single-phase power, while also providing variable speed and extremely strong torque control. The CWI-WL335 offers two speed ranges, infinitely variable from 0 to 1200 rpm and 0 to 3200 rpm, all without losing torque. This means even at the lowest speeds this lathe still provides tremendous control and power.

Enhanced Control Systems

The Rivolver CWI-WL325 offers a very advanced portable controller which allows for stop/start functions, simple, smooth variable speed adjustments as well as forward reverse functions with the flip of a switch. The controller is tied into the power box of the machine with a long flexible cord and a magnetic backing to allow the user to place the control in any convenient position while operating the machine, for fast simple adjustments at the tip of your fingers. Great for working on the front or back sides of the machine for special operations. There is also a digital speed read out to always know the speed you need.

Simple Speed Changes

The CWI-WL325 utilizes a flat ribbed poly belt to transfer all that power to the spindle of the machine. To change between speeds simply unlock the robust adjustment handle and release the tension on the belt to move it to the second set of precision pulley sizes.

Indexing

The CWI-WL325 also features a robust and accurate indexing pully on the spindle assembly for specialized projects like fluting. Simply twist the spring-loaded locking spindle to allow it to set into the indexing pulley at any one of the 24 indexing positions.

Compact Design

With a swing over the bed of 14” and a generous distance for a compact lathe of 20” max spindle length, this lathe offers more possibilities in a larger range of projects to be accomplished. Don’t be fooled though by its compact size. At 121 pounds this robust bench top lathe will handle all you can give it. For more capacity a 24” cast iron bed extension is also available to increase spindle length to 44”.

Versatile Drive System

The headstock on the CWI-WL325 is a standard 1” x 8 TPI external thread with a #2 morse taper spindle inside. These standard sizes easily allow for many standard faceplates, chucks, and centers.  The tailstock also allows for #2 morse taper accessories. Included on both headstock and tailstock are convenient metal handwheels for simple tooling changes and mounting of the work piece.

Included Accessories

The Rivolver CWI-WL325 comes complete with a 4” faceplate, #2 Morse Taper four prong drive spindle, precision ball bearing driven center and a heavy duty 8” tool rest with 1” post. The tool rest is specially designed with a hardened steel rod laser welded to the cast iron rest for extreme life expectancy and smoothness of use. The 1” precision ground steel post is actually threaded into the cast iron rest with an M10 thread making the post replaceable. Rivolver offers these special designed tool rests in optional 4” to 12” sizes and posts in 1” or 5/8” diameter to fit many different wood lathes on the market today.

Options

There are several Rivolver options available for this lathe including four jaw woodturning chucks, adjustable stand, 24” cast iron bed extension, 3”-6” face plate sizes, drill chucks both keyed and keyless and 4” to 12” precision tool rests. For this model we recommend our CWI-WLC2.75 four jaw chuck or the full woodturners kit, CWI-WLC2.75-KT, which includes the chuck and many accessories for most any project you might consider on this lathe.
