    Great Value!

    Edward Posted January 11, 2015
    This is a second lathe (Shopsmith owner from way back). This cleaned up pretty easy out of the packing, and the centers were in line when I first assembled it. Overall pretty decent quality - definitely a working lathe! Will be great for the pen-turning and other smaller-scale work. Haven't yet tried it for bowls, but I have a few blanks that this would be perfect for.

    Excellent Product

    I had read the reviews before ordering this lathe so I knew it would be a competent product. After receiving it I can say I was not in the least disappointed! The drive spindle has zero play, as does the end spindle. The spur drive insert and the live-center end spindle have a fit and finish as good as anyone would expect.

    I've used this lathe at the lowest speed for roughing and at the medium speed of 1600 RPM and found it to be virtually free of vilbration. It's a solidly built, though very basic, lathe with the required precision built in, but without unnecessary cosmetic embellishments.

    I would recommend this lathe to anyone requiring a competent machine, but who doesn't want to spend more than necessary.

    Excellent lathe

    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.
