Product description

This kit of parts enables older Wivamac DB1200 and DB6000 lathes with a heavy-duty (VB1) tailstock to be upgraded to incorporate a thrust bearing at the rear of the quill. This alleviates the problems caused by wear within the mechanism and makes the operation of the quill lighter, and more wear-resistant, in future.

About Wivamac Lathes and Carving Machines

WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.

We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.

We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.

To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
