Wall Thickness of legs on the Revo 24|36 is 80% heavier compared to the Revo 18|36. Redesigned banjo features a more compact design, 45° cutout & a wider base.
Having a second control panel that mounts in two positions (high or low) sets the Revo 24|36 apart from any other lathe in the world, not only can you turn off the machine from this control panel, but it allows the operator to change speed as well. A switch on the back of the headstock designates whether you control the Revo from the headstock control panel or the corresponding control panel, however, E-Stop works on both at any given time.
The blue hue of the DRO along with the beautiful knurled control knob fitted with a rubber grip shows that this is no ordinary lathe. The bed is made from steel which allows the cast iron headstock to travel incredibly smoothly. Steel is the preferred material due to its well-known longevity & strength. Electronic variable speed is obtained via a VFD that converts 1 phase input to 3 phase output, so even at low settings, you will get an incredible amount of torque.
The DRO gives you an accurate RPM readout at all times any fine adjustments are made electronically. Changing from high to low settings is made easy by using the quick release handle. The headstock & tailstock lock handles are situated on the back to eliminate any interruptions to your workflow. Ergonomically designed handles use a cam lock resulting in a firm feel with no deflection.
