The 46-460 includes 6in and 10in Tool Rest, spur center, Chrome 3 in Face Plate, tool rest base, Knockout Bar, live center, wrenches.

  • Powerful 1 HP max, 1,725 rpm Motor
  • Large 12-1/2 in swing capacity provides the largest capacity in its class
  • Electronic Variable Speed with three-pulley speed ranges provide the required speeds needed to turn a project without changing belt position
  • Forward and Reversing function allows the turner to achieve a superior finish. Sanding a turned piece with the grain causes the wood fibers to lay down and remain rough. Sanding a turned piece against the grain will cut the wood fibers smooth. Rotating the turned piece in both directions is the way to achieve this super smooth finish. With our competitors the turner would need to remount the work piece backward to achieve this dual rotation. This is time consuming and often impossible. With the Delta 46-460 it is a simple flip of the switch.
  • Patented belt tensioning system for easy and quick speed changes and sets the belt at the correct tension every time for maximum power transfer and longer tool life
  • 6 groove belt provides superior power to turn large objects
  • Indexing pin to lock the head stock spindle in 24 different locations for fluting and other decorative applications
  • All cast-iron construction provides stability and is extremely durable
  • Over Headstock On/Off switch provides easy in use access
  • Ball-bearing live center
  • Includes 3in face plate, 6in tool rest and 10in tool rest. Turning long spindles require either a longer tool rest or the user to continually move the short tool rest. Turning short work requires a short spindle; the long spindle will not allow the turner to get close enough to the piece.
  • Extension Bed (Model 46-463) is a 25-1/2 in long cast-iron bed that increases the overall bed length of the 46-460 to 42in
  • On board storage for easy access to adjustment tools
  • 6in and 10in tool rests provides tool support in a variety of turning applications
  • Heavy-duty, steel knockout bar

The 46-455 includes 6 and 10 inch Tool Rest, spur center, Chrome 3 inch Face Plate, tool rest base, Knockout Bar, live center, wrenches.

  • Powerful 3/4 HP max, 1,725 rpm Motor
  • Large 12-1/2 inch swing capacity provides the largest capacity in its class
  • Easy front panel access to five speed controls (500; 950; 1,550; 2,700 and 4,000) reduces down time
  • Patented automatic belt tensioning system for easy and quick speed changes and sets the belt at the correct tension every time for maximum power transfer and longer tool life
  • 4 Groove Belt provides superior power to turn large objects
  • Indexing pin to lock the head stock spindle in 24 different locations for fluting and other decorative applications
  • Over Headstock On/off switch provides easy in use access
  • All cast-iron construction provides stability and is extremely durable
  • With a maximum distance between centers of 16-1/2 inch the MIDI LATHE turns objects as long as a chair leg or as short as a thimble. With the bed extension the MIDI LATHE can turn bed posts, stair spindles, baseball bats.
  • Ball-bearing live center for smooth turnings
  • On board storage for easy access to adjustment tools
  • 6 and 10 inch tool rests provides tool support in a variety of turning applications
  • Heavy-duty, steel knockout bar
