Item# Rikon 70-1420VSR 14″ x 20″ Midi VSR Lathe



RIKON 14 x 20 VARIABLE SPEED MIDI LATHE 70-1420VSR is the largest benchtop lathe in the RIKON line of machinery. This upgraded model gives woodturners increased spindle-to-bed height so that larger diameter work can be done. The addition of 3 machined surfaces to mount optional extensions increase the working dimensions even further.

Use the headstock’s outboard threaded spindle and optional 13-1/2″ Bed Extension (70-903) to add 4″ of extra turning diameter capacity.
Mount this same extension to the front of the lathe bed, and with the remounted tool rest the outside edges or backs of bowls and platters can be safely turned. Lastly, the right bed end of the lathe is machined to attach the optional 13-1/2″ or the longer 24″ extension (70-904), for increasing the working distance from 20″ to 44″ for spindles.
