The Scout 16” extension can be used to increase your spindle capacity from 26” to 42”. Mounted on the outboard side of the lathe, you can turn a bowl or platter up to 21” in diameter. If used outboard, you will also want to by the toolrest extension to get your toolrest up to the proper height.
Upgrade your Scout to a 1.5 HP motor, wired to your choice of 110 or 220 volt. If you’re going to routinely turn larger work outboard or just want the extra power for material removal, you’ll want to select the 1.5 HP upgrade.
A vacuum adapter is the rotary coupling needed to connect a vacuum hose to the lathe spindle. It simply slides into the handwheel end of the spindle and is held in place with two 0-rings. The threads for the fittings are standard ¼” NPT (National Pipe Thread), available online or at any hardware store. This is the only part of the vacuum system we sell.
