According to Delta's website, there are two different versions of the 46-460 lathe- a Type 1 and a Type 2. Can Home Depot confirm which one is being sold here online? Thanks.

The lathes are the same size with similar features; however, the 46-460 has a 1 HP motor and it also has electronic variable speed control. The speed can be changed by turning a knob on the top of the lathe. This lathe also has 3 belt positions which give 3 speed ranges with the variable speed control.

The speed can be changed by turning a knob on the top of the lathe. This lathe also has 3 belt positions which give 3 speed ranges with the variable speed control. I have this model, and I do most of my work with the middle belt position; the speed control has enough range in this position for my work.
The 46-455 has a 3/4 HP motor, and it does not have electronic variable speed control. This is a 5-speed lathe, and the changes in speed are achieved by turning the lathe off and moving the belt from one of the 5 pulley steps to another. Changing the belt position is easily done and takes about 10 seconds. Read Less

Answer: 
Hello Valued Customer,
Thanks for your question and interest in these items. The main difference in the two would be the horse power. Model 46-460 offers a 1 horse power single phase and Model 46-455 is a 3 ¾ horse power single phase. I hope this helps!
If you have any additional questions or need assistance placing an online order, please feel free to contact our Online Customer Service department at

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Lathe yet I have owned 3 other wood lathes and I have been disappointed with all of them from cheap to a Craftsman. The Delta Lathe is a great lathe for the price. The precision and quiet operation are amazing as well as it's power. I also was surprised by the fact that I received the lathe a week early! Great purchase! July 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Tool Defered Like many woodworkers, despite loving turning in shop class 45 years ago, I felt owning a lathe was an extravagance that would not be used often enough to justify the expense and shop space. I had managed to make most of the spindles I had to have on the drill press or with a router. However, now having worked on my first project, a set of belaying pins, I recall how enjoyable turning is. After doing the research and deciding on the Delta, Home Depot had the best price and quick delivery. The machine was ready to go right out of the box. I built a heavy, dedicated stand for it and bought a starter set of tools. I was most impressed by how quiet and smooth the machine runs. I am now looking for projects and particularly interested in trying to make some bowls from the odd grains in my firewood stumps. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good value still learning specifics of lathe, anxious to make my first project April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased. I was very happy with this lathe. The product features are all easy to use even for a first time turner. It is quiet for a shop tool. Seems to be solid and well made for the price. April 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Parts were missing. I studied up on this lathe and liked the features that it came with. I had the packages shipped to the store and they all arrived without damage. They had not been opened. I assembled the stand and the extension first but unfortunately when I started to place the lathe on the stand I found that the tool holder was missing four parts which allow you to lock it in place on the lathe bed. I called Delta's customer service the next day. The first call, they told me the information they needed and the second call I waited 30 minutes on hold but they took my information and said they would ship the parts. I would say the other reviews are correct. My motor is wired backwards as well but the tool appears to be as nice as I hoped. If the correct parts actually arrive in a timely manner I would change my review to a 5. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my new lathe, I purchased the Delta midi lathe to replace a PSI PenPal lathe. The set up was easy and I was able to put it to work immediately. I make hand crafted pens and bangles and this lathe can handle every operation. It has plenty of power and speed range selection is a breeze. The mating stand was purchased as well. I considered building a stand myself but I am glad purchased the Delta stand it was simple to assemble, very sturdy and has storage for turning chisels. This was really great purchased and was shipped to my home wthin a few days. I couldn't be happier. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WIRED INCORRECTLY I purchased the Delta 46-460 midi lathe with bed extension in December 2015. Shipment of the items was as promised by Home Depot and I picked up the items at the local store. I unpacked the items during January and there appeared to be no damage during transportation of items to store. I mounted the lathe and bed extension on a table adequate for my use. After cleaning the protective material from the lathe I proceeded to check the motor operation. The motor and variable speed function worked fine except; LATHE ROTATION WAS OPPOSITE WHAT WAS INDICATED ON REVERSING SWITCH.. When the switch is in the "forward" position, the lathe rotates away from operator. When the switch is in the "Reverse" position the lathe rotates toward the operator. This is not a big problem once you realize it operates oposite of what is indicated. However, if someone unfamiliar with its operation tried to use it, it is an accident waiting to happen! To their credit, Delta publishes numerous safety warnings regarding use of the reversing motor switch. However, all the warnings mean nothing when Delta's quality control allows a unit to be shipped which is wired incorrectly. Otherwise the lathe seems to be of excellent quality and a very good value. I request that Home Depot/Delta/Black and Decker advise me how to correct the wiring problem. If the fix is relatively simple, I will correct the problem myself. If not, then please advise what I must do to get the problem corrected by Home Depot or the manufacturer. I am using the lathe as is but, I don't want to take a chance on someone else being injured by one of my tools. March 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by so far so good! The product was nicely packaged and delivered quickly. It is a lot heavier than I expected for a small lathe which I consider a good thing. Seems to be very well constructed and all components function well. The one complaint I do have is that the on/off switch was loose and the polarity of the motor is wired wrong. Forward is reverse and reverse is forward. It seems to me that should not happen. February 13, 2016
