It’s not very often that I come across two consecutive offers for woodworking tools that I can thoroughly recommend from the point of view of being an owner and user. First it was the Flexcut chisels (see below) and now this Record woodturning lathe.
I can’t remember how long I’ve had mine – it’s certainly over fifteen years. Back then it was just called the DML24, now they’ve tweaked it a bit and it’s the DML24X/C. Whatever, it’s still the same great little lathe, ideal for the beginner but tough, durable and useful even when you’ve been turning for years.
It’s made in Sheffield, England, which has been making top quality tools for centuries, and comes with a five year warranty. Mine hasn’t missed a beat in three times that. Normally this lathe sells for close to $320.00 and because of its reputation is always in short supply. Just at the moment Woodcraft have very limited stocks for $199.99. I doubt you’ll ever see it at that price again so if you’re at all interested you need to act right now. Click here for full spec and to order.
