Features you will like on all Robust lathes:
Stainless Steel Ways: Stainless steel ways are standard equipment on all our lathes. Whether you turn wet wood or exotics, your Robust ways will not rust.
Spindle: The spindle is pre-hardened 4140 Chrome Moly alloy with an 1 1/4-8 spindle nose drilled and readily equipped for vacuum. There is a groove for a safety set screw and a #2 Morse taper. A metric spindle, threaded 33 x 3.5 is also available.
Spindle lock: The spindle lock electronically disconnects the controls when it is engaged. No more burnt belts when you forget to unlock the spindle.
Bearings: Heavy duty permanently lubricated bearings are fitted. They carry 40 percent more load than leading competitors. That's why Robust is the only manufacturer that warrants the headstock bearings, and warrants them for seven years.
Handwheel: All lathes are equiped with a highly polished and comfortable handwheel.
Indexing: 48 position indexing is standard
Motor and Drives: We use Leeson motors and quality matched drives. All systems are 220v single phase, with the exception of the 1.5 HP motors which are also available in 110v. The drive can be slowed to a creep for operations like applying finishes. Because we use a vector drive with auto-tune, full torque is available at ALL speeds.
Controls: Variable speed and forward/reverse are standard. All the lathe controls are on a corded pendant with a magnetic back. Place them on the headstock, tailstock, or anywhere else that is convenient for you.
Sliding Headstock: The American Beauty, Liberty and Independence feature sliding headstocks that can be slid the length of the bed, allowing full access to the work from a variety of natural body positions. Sliding headstocks quickly release and lock down via a lever extending from the end of the headstock. Because it is bigger, actuating the lever on the American Beauty engages two lock-downs.
Bed Construction: Beds are constructed of structural and stainless steel, fully welded and stress relieved before final finishing. 24 inch bed extensions are available for the American Beauty, and 16 inch for the Liberty and Sweet 16.
Comfortable Center Height: Adjustable legs easily adjust the spindle height from just under 42 to almost 50 inch.
Warranty: Robust offers and exclusive seven year warranty on all mechanical parts, including the headstock bearings. Electrical components are warranted for one year.
