Speeds

Warning: As with all Mark V accessories, selecting the proper speed dial setting is important to help prevent damage to the equipment or injury to the operator. Generally, when using the lathe duplicator, slower speeds are used for large stock or during initial rounding operations and then the speed is increased for final shaping and sanding.

Refer to Table 13-2 to determine the correct speed for each operation.

Table 13-2: Lathe Duplicator Speed Chart
