I have had this lathe for...

James S from Niagara Falls, NY Posted August 23, 2008
I have had this lathe for two weeks now. Plenty of power and torgue, the EVS is awesome. Just being able to dial-in a needed speed is great. Lathe is very heavy and solid-it makes turning so much more enjoyable.I would definitely recommend this lathe to anyone needing to step up to a full size lathe.

Recently purchased this lathe for Segmented...

Guest from Colleyville, Texas Posted May 28, 2008
Recently purchased this lathe for Segmented and Burl turning. What can I say - plenty of power and handles the large pieces quite nicely. I do this as a hobby and sell a few pieces so this works very well for me.I would recommend this one to anyone that asked and would buy another if I had the need.
