    Excellent lathe

    Edward Posted December 18, 2014
    This is my first wood lathe. The quality is good and the machine performs well. I was impressed that the centers aligned very well, the head stock is sturdy and although it only has 1/2HP, it cuts very well without stalling even on roughing cuts.

    Great Lathe, Highly recommend.

    I am a beginner at using a lathe. I am very happy with the Excelsior Mini Lathe. Very quiet and no vibration. I have done several small projects using maple, red bud, pine, and seasoned locust. I purchased the bed extension and am in the process of turning a 28" long table lag, no problems with the motor getting hot or the tail stock slipping. I am going to buy a spare belt, and I need a centering device to hold long narrow projects like making a cane. It's a great lathe and you can't beat the price.

    Very pleased with value and quality

    Although I am a beginning turner, I am very happy with the Excelsior mini-lathe. Right out of the box the head and tail stock matched up perfectly. The lathe sitting on my work bench offers very little vibration and having turned a couple of simple projects does very well. I would recommend this tool for anyone wanting to start turning or even an accomplished turner wanting a bench top tool. Power is very adequate and quill operates very smoothly. Great value and very good quality.
