Oneway Woodturning Lathes

Above: The Oneway 2436 3HP woodturning lathe is the 'dream machine' for many woodturners and is well-deserving of the accolade. A favourite among professional turners who appreciate its rugged reliability and ease of use, this remains a machine at the pinnacle of the premium quality woodturning lathe market.

2000 Series Lathes Specifications Overview

The 2000 series offers models with 24" and 20" swing over the bed and between centres distances of 16" or 36".
Spindle taper - #2 Morse
Tailstock taper - #3 Morse
Spindle thread - M33 * 3.5 RH (inboard and outboard, making attachments quickly interchangeable.)
Outboard attachments are available in two sizes to enable increased turning diameter on the outboard spindle.
Two bed extensions are available - 17" extension & 60" extension. Extensions bolt on to the end of the bed allowing the turner an extended distance between centres.

Headstock: Features a four bearing spindle. At the front are two 45 mm internal diameter ball bearings custom fitted with ground spacers, and locked to the shaft with a clamp ring and lock nut. This minimizes radial and axial play of the spindle. The 40 mm diameter rear bearings float axially to allow for heat expansion. Bearings are no maintenance greased for life. Six position spindle lock and 7-1/2ū (48 position) indexing is standard.

The Spindle: The spindle nose, which holds the front bearings, protrudes approximately 3" in front of the headstock allowing easy tool manoeuvring when working on the rearside of a plate or bowl. The thread is M33 * 3.5 with a groove machined for a lock screw to allow full power forward and reverse turning. Pulley Size: 3 step 10 groove Poly V

The Tailstock: The tailstock has an 1-1/2" diameter quill with 4" travel. The 5" handwheel and the high lead on this screw allows rapid in and out feeds for drilling. No. 3 Morse Taper bore for mounting centres etc.The through hole is 5/16" (8 mm) diameter which allows lamp base and similar drilling to be carried out. The tailstock has a carry handle for easy removal and adjustments.

The Banjo/Toolrest Base is a radical new design that assures even, powerful locking anywhere on the bed (PATENT No. 6000447). The sliding cam is supported by a cam support block which rests on a ledge machined in the toolrest base. This sliding cam clamping mechanism ensures tight clamping and smooth operation in every position on the lathe bed.

The Toolrest: The toolrest is clamped in the banjo with a captive non-marking block. The clamp screw handle can be adjusted at 45 degree rotations to ensure minimum interference when turning. The toolrest is designed to work with the banjo so that you can get very close to the front and rear side of turnings.

The Drive/Inverter: The electronics contained in all our lathes are of the highest quality and provide variable speed with ramp up/ramp down, forward/reverse, and dynamic braking. Power supply is 220 volt, Single Phase AC. The drive package is fully electronic with speeds from 0 - 3000 RPM (forward or reverse). Excellent torque is available at as low as 30 RPM, with brute force available at as little as 100 RPM. Speed ranges are 70-700 / 190-1900 / 305-3050. Changing range is easy and can be completed in under one minute. Controls for this drive are mounted on a swinging pendant which can be moved to the headstock or tailstock for easy reach and clearance at all times.

The Bed: Bedways and ribs are welded to a 10-3/4 inch diameter * 5/16 inch wall tube. The assembly is stress relieved and precision machined. Almost perfect torsional rigidity is achieved - many times more so than twin tube or cast iron bed designs.

Included with the lathe:- 6" Faceplate; #3 MT Live Center; #2 MT Safe Driver; 14" Toolrest; Knock-out Rod; Owners Manual

The Oneway 1236SD Sit-Down lathe is a unique concept in lathe design. Intended to make it possible for turners with limited physical mobility to be able to participate in turning in safety and comfort, the 1236SD allows the turner to work seated  either in a standard chair or from a wheelchair. The entire bed assembly rotates forward at the press of a hand to enable the seated turner to work with the legs under the bed, unobstructed by other parts of the lathes structure. An ingenious secondary banjo allows the turner to work at the rotated lathe with the same facility and ease of access as would be provided by a standard bed and banjo arrangement. With the lathe in the upright position it can be operated exactly as a standard lathe. A superb example of a manufacturer making a useful contribution to improving the lot of differently-abled turners.
