Our customers have long been familiar with the exceptional standards of design, engineering and performance that characterise lathes produced by Wivamac. Now, they have the opportunity to be reminded once more, with the UK preview of the company’s latest revolutionary lathe range set to take place at The ToolPost’s Didcot showroom and shop between 2pm and 5:30pm on Friday 17th February, and from 9:30pm to 3pm on Saturday 18th February.
The lathe that will be unveiled at the event, the Zebrano, draws upon Wivamac’s decades of expertise to make new standards of Woodturning possible. While the lathe is literally a heavyweight, it is also exceptionally attractive and elegant, in addition to being the most innovative and stable wood lathe in its price range.
Wivamac’s existing knowhow in providing the best-functioning woodturning solutions combines with modern ergonomics and safety to produce the complete lathe.
Incredible attention to detail
Every part of the Zebrano has been thoroughly considered as part of Wivamac’s goal to produce the most stable, safe and effective woodturning lathe. Not only is this lathe known for its sturdy execution, but it is also extremely vibration-free, while its full cast-iron stand and low bed ensure a low centre of gravity. A full cast-iron frame, headstock, tailstock, ingenious tool support and ergonomic Control Box together help to make the Zebrano the ultimate lathe for committed woodturners.
The many fine touches that make the Zebrano such a standout machine include a large bed depth for greater stiffness and integrated diagonal truss structure reinforcements for extra torsional stiffness. The rotating and sliding headstock comes with an eccentric and adjustable clamping system, while the tailstock is of an ergonomically enhanced asymmetrical shape and offers extremely smooth operation.
The tool support is curved in shape to enable better access to hollow larger workpieces and there are coloured headstock lights to indicate machine status. With the Zebrano being available in various sizes and fully equipped with standard accessories including a drive center, revolving center and ejection rod, as well as extensions such as bed extensions and bowl turning devices, owners of the lathe are able to specify exactly what extras they require in accordance with their specific needs.
