Basic Rod Lathe

The Renzetti Rod Lathe is engineered to meet just about any of the creative rod builder's needs and easy to set up and use. It can power wrap in single and multiple threads with precision tension control. A rod can be set up or removed without removing any attachments. This lathe is equipped with an indexing feature at 0,90,180 & 270 degrees for butt wraps. Made of precision aluminum extrusion and machined parts to ensure quality and a lifetime of use. 

The Basic Rod Lathe is the first lathe Renzetti ever offer and continues to be the most precise Rod Lathe in the world. Since then we introduced the Craftsman Rod Lathe which offers the same features as the Basic Lathe, but  different bed extensions. A conversion kit is available to convert a Basic Lathe to a Craftsman Lathe. 

The Basic Rod Lathe comes with a 3ft. Bed with Head Stock, Pulley  and 3 Jaw Chuck ( key and allen wrench included), 2 Bed Extensions with 2 connecting brackets and 2 riser blocks, 2 Rod Supports. 1 Eight-Spool Thread Feed with individual spool tension, 1 Rolling Carriage,1 Motor Belt and 1 Motor Pulley.

To add power to the Rod Lathe please add the 1/10 HP motor, Motor Bracket and Foot Control.
