The Sherwood Minimax Wood Lathe is right in the Goldilocks Zone – not too big, not too small. It’s light enough to move around the workshop, but big enough to handle pretty much any turning job. The perfect machine for emerging woodturners, and for makers who need to add turning capability to their workflow.

Sherwood Minimax Wood Lathe 305mm

The Sherwood Minimax Wood Lathe bridges the gap between the Mini and Midi series lathes, giving you the best of both worlds in one convenient and reliable package.   

With all the features woodturners want at an affordable price, the Sherwood Minimax Lathe has serious capacity and 550W of power at spindle speeds of up to 3500rpm. It is easily mobile and tucks away beautifully in a garage, but best of all, it's built tough for guaranteed reliability. 

Ready for Lift-Off

It has a solid cast-iron bed suitable for absorbing vibration, delivering rock-solid performance. And you’ll be ready to go right out of the box, because this lathe includes a face plate, spur drive, live centre and knockout bar and tool rest! Every fitting on this lathe is specifically design to fit the industry-standard morse tapers and threads, and unlike some of its larger competitors, it excels when performing at its maximum capacity. 

Electronic Variable Speed 

When you need the best possible level of control to optimise your accuracy and eliminate speed-related tear-out and chatter, then EVS is essential. Forward and reverse settings allow you to hollow out your projects with ease, keeping eyes on what you’re doing, as well as allowing the cleanest finish. The power is in your hands. 

  • 5-Year Warranty

All Sherwood products feature a standard 5-Year limited warranty. No other wood lathe in its class is more supported than the Sherwood Minimax Variable Speed Wood Lathe.
