New Product - RP2000 Compact Scroll Chuck Now in Stock

27th November 2013
Record Power are well known for their comprehensive range of woodturning accessories and the RP2000 Compact Scroll Chuck is the latest addition to the range. Made from high quality steel to exacting standards, this four jaw geared scroll chuck is the ideal choice for beginners or more experienced turners who regularly work with small objects. Supplied complete with a set of standard dovetail jaws and a handy woodscrew, this compact chuck offers unrivalled value for money.
 
The RP2000 is extremely compact, being only 62 mm in diameter, facilitating easy access to workpieces, allowing fine and delicate work to be carried out more easily than with a larger chuck, which can sometimes make access to small projects difficult. However, the size of this chuck does not hinder its versatility as it is capable of holding larger work and can be used to turn bowls up to 12 inches in diameter, making it a great all-rounder. Due to its size and weight it is ideal for use on smaller lathes as it places minimal stress on the bearings.
 
Also available are four optional sets of jaws, to really make the most of this chuck. The RP2000A Pin Jaw Set, RP2000B Step Jaw Set, RP2000C Wide Grip Jaw Set,  and RP2000D Remounting Jaw Set. See Record Power's website for full details.
 
The RP2000 is available in three thread sizes - 3/4" x 16 TPI, 1" x 8 TPI and also available is an adaptor to change the 3/4" x 16 TPI version to an M33 thread. Starting from just £69.99 for the direct thread versions (the chuck and M33 adaptor package will cost £79.99), this chuck is unbeatable value for money, particularly when taking into account that Record Power's standard 5 year guarantee applies.
 
To purchase or request further details, please contact your local Record Power stockist, go online to www.recordpower.co.uk or call Record Power on 01246 571 020.

New Product - DML18SH-SK Woodturning Starter Package

12th November 2013

Record Power, with their long established history and experience in woodturning, have put together an exceptionally good quality and great value package, aimed at the new woodturner. It contains a swivel head lathe and essential selection of accessories to help the novice get off to a flying start and is priced at only £299.99.

 
Woodturning can be an endlessly satisfying and creative pastime; an accessible craft for beginners yet with huge scope for development and artistic expression. This collection contains everything you need to create your own beautiful and original work, limited only by your imagination.
 
The lathe contained in this package, the DML18SH, is ideally suited to the ambitious beginner or more serious turner on a restricted budget. It is based on Record Power's extremely popular DML36SH-CAM lathe and features 4 speeds and cam lock handles on both the banjo and tailstock for ease of use. The tubular steel bed bars, sealed for life bearings and heavyweight cast construction provide a rigid base for turning. To save valuable space in the workshop, the lathe has been made more compact by giving 18" between centres - Still providing plenty of capacity for tackling a huge range of projects whilst also being greater than many other compact lathes on the market. Simple to operate and low in maintenance, this lathe is perfect either for the starter who wants a machine that will grow with their skills, or as an upgrade to some of the poorer quality machines often aimed at beginners, which often lack any meaningful range of compatible accessories and are plagued with poor performance issues.
 
The package also contains a set of four essential high quality turning tools, a woodscrew chuck (for mounting bowls) and an indispensable tuitional DVD, presented by Alan Holtham. This excellent DVD features full lathe assembly instructions and over two hours of tuition, covering the techniques essential for both bowl and spindle turning, as well as showing the correct tools to use and how to sharpen them successfully. It really is the ideal introduction to the world of woodturning.
 
Of course, many woodturners can attest to the addictive nature of woodturning. As skills and confidence grow, many complement their workshop with accessories and upgrades to cater for their developing abilities. Record Power offers a huge range of options, from their extremely popular range of chucks, jaws, faceplates and many other accessories, right up to professional variable speed machines, all upwardly compatible to ensure that the DML18SH-SK package is not only a great deal but also a very sensible investment. This package also comes with Record Power's standard industry-leading 5 year guarantee.
 
The DML18SH-SK Woodturning Starter Package is now in stock nationwide - To purchase or request further details, please contact your local Record Power stockist, go online to www.recordpower.co.uk or call Record Power on 01246 571 020.
