Robust lathes are only sold direct and by the Woodturning Professionals listed below. These dealers regularly use Robust lathes for their personal work and many teach on them as well.  When you speak to a Robust Dealer you can be sure you are speaking with someone who knows woodturning and more than a little about Robust lathes. Not just anyone gets to do this.

Robust dealers don’t compete on price, a firm policy that honors the investment you make when you purchase a Robust lathe. While there are no geographical restrictions on any of our dealers, you may find it advantageous to work with someone close to you or with someone you already know.  Feel free to contact any of them or Robust directly.

Alan Lacer: Robust lathes are rugged and solid machines. The sliding headstock on the American Beauty
places these lathes at the front of the pack. The standard stainless-steel ways on all models leads to an
effortless glide of the banjo and tailstock. The Tilt Away feature is a real innovation.

patented Tilt Away tailstock Robust has thought of everything a turner might need in a lathe.

John Jordan Woodturning


John and I imported a lathe from Australia for years, but they eventually became hard to get. Then John became quite impressed with ROBUST lathes and started advising people who called to buy a Robust! We received a commission check in the mail with a note saying: You are already selling our lathes, you might as well become a ROBUST dealer! An American made lathe by nice folks and John said his American Beauty was the best lathe he ever turned on! What more could you want? - Vicki Jordan
