To ad more weight and stability to the lathe when turning larger pieces there is the optional Heavy-Duty system. First there are the plates (DBHDPLATES), with a weight of 22kg each, that can be fixed on the outside of to the A-frame stand of all the Wivamac lathes. In addition to the plates a sturdy beam (DBHDBEAM) can be mounted between the A-frame stands of the DB6000 and DB1200 lathes.
