The only midi sized lathe with full sive lathe features!
I wanted to upgrade my hobby rated midi lathe which lacked the power to turn a bowl it claimed to have the capacity to turn. Looking at full-sized lathes, the features I liked were the swivel headstock and the movable control panel. However, a full-sized lathe would mean something in my shop would have to go. So, sticking with a Midi lathe would be better for me.
I considered a couple of cheaper lathes neither had the movable control panel. One didn’t even have the self-ejecting tailstock you find even on entry-level machines! I have to say the 100mm stroke of the Midi Pro tailstock is great, saves keep shuffling the whole tailstock forward. So, for me, the extra £200 was worth it to get the 'grown-up' features. To my way of thinking it was the only midi sized full-size lathe out there!
I’ve turned a 12” bowl on it and the lathe had more than enough power to deal with it. Even though it is a fairly heavy lathe for its size, the 12” bowl had unbalanced grain so I found bolting it down to a solid bench that’s bolted to the wall was necessary (The Midi Pro weighs 65Kg compared to at least 150Kg of a full-sized lathe). It runs very quiet as you’d expect, has plenty of power, solid build quality, great tailstock and the motor doesn’t lurch into action, it speeds up slowly. All round a pleasure to use.
Midi Pro lathe
Dear Simon, just wanted to say thank you for the extremely efficient service with the delivery of my Midi Pro lathe and bed extension. Super quick and well packed, and delivered well too, on a mini pallet by a chap with a pallet truck.
Lovely lathe and will help me so much as the sliding and angling head stock means I can work without straining my back!! I suppose I should say thanks To Ed Oliver as it was his YouTube demo of the lathe which inspired me!
Best wishes, Nigel Oram
