Safety Equipment

Emergency Stop Button

There is a Emergency Stop button on top of the motor controller to the left hand side of the lathe if you are standing at the front facing the lathe. By pressing this button the motor will be turned off and the spindle will slow to a stop. To reset the red "top hat" of the button must be rotated clockwise a short distance until the "top hat" springs up. If it does not rotate, then it is likely that the Emergency stop button has not been activated and the fault maybe elsewhere.

Spindle Lock

There is a Spindle Lock that is a mechanical stop that prevents the Spindle and your work rotating.
