The Wonky Turntable by Kaizen Bonsai
Over the years we have seen any number of tilting work stations for bonsai use. Most are either ludicrously complicated and expensive or seriously lack functionality. Here at Kaizen Bonsai working on trees is part of daily life and so we know what is required in order to get the work done. We are pleased to finally be able to offer a practical, simple and very useable tilting turntable at an exceptional price.
When working on bonsai it is extremely useful to have a rotating turntable. This makes for easy working whether wiring, pruning or performing any number of maintenance tasks. A rotating AND tilting turntable is extremely useful when styling bonsai or considering a change of angle at repotting time. Holding the tree at the desired angle means wiring and pruning can easily be done to give the desired effect once the new planting angle is achieved. Tilting your tree over is also useful to improve access when carving or pruning complicated trees with dense canopies.
Our innovative turntable mounts securely via a powerful vice onto horizontal or vertical (a chair back for instance) surfaces up to 55mm thick. Perfect for work benches or tables. Just one screw attaches the turntable in seconds. When using the turntable with the top level the rubber top will prevent your trees pot from sliding. For gentle angle operation the supplied dowels are simply slipped into their securing holes and will support the weight of most trees easily. The dowels are simply dropped into their locating holes as required. For extreme angles trees are secured using the heavy weight bands supplied that are simply secured, again, using the dowels supplied. Adjusting the angle of operation is achieved in a couple of seconds by releasing a single lock screw. The turntable also features a simple screw lock to prevent the work top rotating if required. The 250mm diameter turntable top easily accommodates most shohin and mid-sized bonsai trees but with a little care in securing the pot much larger trees can be accommodated. The maximum safe working load when securely mounted to a good work top is 15Kg, this obviously decreases as the tilt angle increases.
Simple, innovative and ready to use right out of the box. This superb little turntable ticks all the boxes and will prove to be a real asset in anyone's bonsai workshop. Complete unit is supplied pre-assembled and ready to use. Made in the U.K exclusively for Kaizen Bonsai Ltd.
There are similar products available elsewhere at lower prices but those offer fewer features, like not rotating, please bear this in mind when making your selection.
