This lathe is specifically designed to build walking canes. However it could be used for turning other wood projects also. It comes with the larger 1.4″ spindle bore headstock with 3/4HP variable speed motor and a steady rest with 1.4″ chuck mounted on it just like the headstock has. It has a router, power feed and easy off-setting tailstock for cutting tapers on the cane. It comes with two cutting bits, drill chuck on tailstock, spur driver, router bit and a live center. Canes are easy to build up to 36″ long with this lathe. Longer canes are possible.
