Conover 16" Wood Lathe

The Conover wood lathe featured heavy cast iron construction, precisely machined,

produced a lathe with 16" swing (up to 20"). The lathe featured a user supplied 2" x 6" timbers for the bed.
I purchased the Conover Lathe components locally. It did not include the bed or stand so
I built my own. The bed is made from 2x6 pine with 1 1/2" angle iron for bed ways
Legs are made from 2"x2" square steel.

The Conover Lathe was made in the USA until 2002 and is a true work of art!
