Introduced during the 1970s by the Record Tool Company in Sheffield, the new range of twin-bar bed wood lathes was, at first, designated as the Coronet Models 1, 2 and 3 and later (when the Coronet name was dropped) as the Record CL1, CL2 and CL3. The first of many well-priced and highly effective wood-turning lathes, all were of very similar contraction, exceptionally well built and used only proper materials in their construction with all the main castings in cast iron and solid steels bars for the bed. Top of the range, the No. 3 had chrome-plated bed bars and was more capable in terms of capacity and work rate than the two smaller models. The 0.5 h.p. 1-phase, flange-mounted motor drove into the headstock by a smooth-running Poly-V belt and the whole assembly could be turned through 90 degrees to allow the installation of a bowl-turning rest - the latter being supplied complete with a replacement headstock-end bed foot and a T-rest that allowed the turning of large-diameter workpieces.  However, the two lesser models were also very capable (and reliable) and today make an excellent second-hand  purchase.
