The Jet lathe is awesome in comparison. It is so quiet and smooth. The same chuck does not vibrate at all and the turned piece never needs re-tightening. After the piece is turned, it is so smooth that it doesn't need much sanding. Pieces that took me almost an hour to produce now get done in 1/2 hour.
This is a really heavy unit (220 pounds just for the lathe itself). I got the legs in case this lathe wouldn't fit or if I couldn't lift it onto a 4x8 work bench. Getting it on the work bench required the use of a 1 ton shop crane that I already had from HF. My wife helped me get it onto the table. Then I secured it to the top with their 5/16" hex screws, which took me a good hour to line up. If planning to use the legs, expect to use the lathe where you assemble it (the legs weigh 65 pounds each) and not be able to move this easily. The option is to install Rockler casters on it. This is a tall lathe and I'm only 63" tall. Whether using the legs and casters or mounting it on a 31" tall work bench, the problem would be the same. I needed to build a long step (7" high) in order to work over the lathe. My step is about 50" long and 11 1/4" wide. If you are close to 6' tall, you shouldn't need one.

What I am unhappy about is that the bolts and washers used to connect the legs to the bed were missing, as were the adjustable feet.

A 15amp circuit breaker will work OK, 20 amp would be better yet.
If you plan to run it on an extension cord, then get 12AWG (wire gauge) or better yet, 10AWG.
