Powerful Motor and Variable Speed for Consistency and Precision
Powered by a 1-horsepower max, 1,725-rpm motor, the Delta 46-460 industrial 12-1/2-inch variable-speed midi lathe provides a 12-1/2-inch swing capacity--the largest in its class. Variable speed with three pulley-speed ranges makes it easy to select the required speeds needed to turn a project without changing belt position.

Forward and Reverse Provides a Superior Finish
For accuracy and precision, forward and reverse functions allow the turner to achieve a superior finish. As woodworkers know, sanding a turned piece with the grain causes the wood fibers to lie down and remain rough while sanding a turned piece against the grain will shave the wood fibers smooth. Rotating the turned piece in both directions is the way to achieve a truly smooth finish, yet it often involves remounting the work piece backwards--a time-consuming and often impossible task. With the 46-460, this process is simplified. With a quick flip of the switch, it's done.

Patented Belt-Tensioning System for Fast Speed Changes and Longer Tool Life
A patented belt-tensioning system makes for quick speed changes, and sets the belt at the correct tension every time for maximum power transfer and longer tool life. And large objects are no problem with the six-groove belt that provides superior power for effortless turning.

Cast-Iron Construction for Durability and Strength
Durable and stable with all cast-iron construction, the 46-460 also includes a three-inch face plate, and 6-inch and 10-inch tool rests for tool support in a variety of turning applications.

Warranty Information
The Delta 46-460 industrial 12-1/2-inch variable-speed midi lathe is backed by a five-year warranty.

After much research on Amazon and elsewhere, I decided to purchase a
Delta variable speed midi lathe as a Christmas gift for my husband last year. Reviews indicated that Delta tools were dependable and well built. What the reviews didn't say is there is no customer service.
Within a week, the speed control ceased to work. Then the motor reset switch followed suit. After several calls to Customer Service, the lathe was shipped to Delta for repair. That was in May and my husband was told after several weeks that the company was having trouble getting parts. In June, the story was the same.
After yet another frustrating call in early July, the service department explained that the parts were still on order and that the warehouse was in transition to be moved. When asked if the lathe would be repaired soon, my husband was told quite frankly they didn't know.
As we approach August, 8 months since the lathe was purchased, I felt compelled to write to Delta headquarters hoping that their awareness of the situation and concern for customer satisfaction would get my husband's much cherished lathe returned. I am still waiting....... Potential Delta customers, be aware, THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU. And Delta, please learn from your mistakes, fix my husband's lathe or if it's not repairable, replace it.

This is my sixth lathe, two of which I still use. This Delta and a 24 inch lathe. This Delta, in my estimation is the top dog in the small/mini/midi lathe category. It has everything the others have, plus. The only one with 12 1/2 inch swing and the only one with reverse turning, which is great for sanding. It also has a full 1 HP motor which handles the larger items with ease. Yes, it is a little on the healthy side, weighing in at 97 lbs. However, the extra weight is what gives it the stability and and solidness to deliver on the larger, more unbalanced pieces. The fit and finish is uncompromised. In less than an hour from delivery I had it unpacked, metal preservative removed, and ready to turn my first item. Changing the belt on the step pulley is a breeze. A lever raises the motor, two doors provide access, and in no time the belt is shifted to another step on the pulley and you are ready to get back to making shavings. The lever assures correct belt tension each time the belt is changed. Controls are conveniently placed, tail stock and tool rest banjo change position with ease, and the metal locking levers insure lasting durability. I like to turn outside when possible and this lathe provides the ability to do that. My other lathe weighs about 600 lbs. so I don't move it. This one, I can pick up, I didn't say easily, I said pick up, and place it where I want it. My patio is the perfect place. To say I like this lathe is an understatement. I look forward to many hours of turning and the enjoyment of using a tool that does exactly what it was designed to do. Amazon and UPS had the lathe here exactly when they said it would be here and the great Delta packaging got it here safe and sound. Get one and let the shavings fly.

Another example of Delta's poor quality and no concern for customer service. I received the lathe from Amazon in a very timely manner with no damage to the packaging. Set up the lathe and turned it on, the first thing I noticed was a wobble in the headstock handwheel. After some investigation I noticed the spindle drive pulley wobbled up and down the same as the handwheel leading the conclusion that it had a bent spindle. I called Delta to get them to send a new spindle since it is an easy user replaceable part. Delta was unwilling to do that, the only options I was given was to ship it them at my expense or transport it to the nearest service center 150 miles away, again at my expense. Both options would cost more than the relacement spindle. Delta had no concern for the expense or inconvenience to the consumer, it was all about what was best for them. I bought this product new and was really looking forward to, instead I got defective productive and a lot unnecessary frustration thanks to Delta. It is unfortunate that Delta's quality continues to be so poor, this is the last Delta product I will ever buy.

I purchased this lathe to replace a Jet mini because I wanted the variable speed control. I really liked the Jet but I LOVE this Delta! The variable speed works smoothly and I like the fact that it has a slow speed of 250 rpm, (which is nice when starting an unbalanced bowl), and goes up to 4000 (perfect for pen turning). The reversing feature of the 1 HP motor is useful when sanding.
You would have to spend a lot more to get a better lathe, making the Delta 46-460 an excellent value!

After reviewing many reviews for this product and the Jet variable speed lathe (comparable to Delta's product), I ordered and received this product from Amazon. Packaged well and delivered as promised with my Prime account.
Unfortunately, the spindle threads were damaged slightly during set up and to be safe, I ordered a replacement direct through Delta a few weeks later (late January, 2012). Delta's service has been and still is pathetic. A KEY component for a lathe (the spindle for the headstockand it is not "in stock". I have waited over a month now for a replacment part and the pat answer from Delta is "it's unavailable, on back-order and we don't know when it will ship".
I own several power tools from JET and am beginning to wish I had ordered my lathe from JET as their service and dependability has been excellent over the years. Hindsight...so perfect.
Unbelievable that Delta does not inventory key componnents for their power tools, especially this relatively new lathe that has received excellent reviews.
