The Bigger, Bolder T-60S Wood Lathe

Harvey T-60S Turbo Wood Lathe

Ever since we introduced the T-40 Turbo Wood Lathe in the US, some of the top turners asked us if we could provide a larger capacity lathe with the same features and benefits of the T-40 but just scaled up.

The T-60S lathe does just that by combining the technological advances of the T-40’s Industrial Servo Motor and control system with a 24” swing over the bed and 48” between centers. The T-60S motor has the same 300% overload capacity and the same 2 microsecond response time that provides the torque you need when working on larger pieces.

Other features include:

  • 2HP Servo Motor, 230V single phase operation
  • Spindle speeds (High Range/Low Range) providing variable speeds between 200-3500 rpm/60-1000 rpm
  • Easy changing V-belt for fast set-ups
  • Secondary Start/Stop control with a magnetic back for mounting anywhere on the lathe.
  • The headstock slides along the entire length of the bed
  • Large headstock spindle with three heavy-duty bearings for greater stability and turning performance
  • A swing away tail bed extension that allows the tailstock to be moved without removing it from the bed
  • An optional extension bed that mounts to the end of the lathe for an additional 35” of swing. Β The bed can also be mounted in the center of the lathe for larger outboard turning projects.
  • 48 position indexing with an easy one-hand spindle locking mechanism
  • Comparator arms for easier duplicating
  • 24” guard for increased operator protection
  • 1-1/4”, 8 TPI MT #2 spindle; 4-1/2” of tailstock travel with self-ejection
  • Premium cast iron construction
  • Heavy duty solid-locking handles

We will be showing the prototype units in Raleigh, NC at the AAW Symposium on July 11-14. Stuart Kent will be there doing demonstrations on our Harvey lathes and a few turner friends of Harvey will be dropping by to try it out. Β Come and see what they think!
