    This has been a workhorse in our prototype shop. Excellent value!
    5/ 5stars

    Bought this in Feb of 2015. We have had only one problem, and Grizzly sent out parts right away. The original 4 jaw chuck had a stress crack. The Replacement has held up fine.
    We have used it for some serious work. Boring out 316 stainless cylinders at 3 inches ID was the toughest job we gave it so far. We had to tighten the spindle bearings once. That was an easy job. I should have put an hour meter on it. The only limitation it has is it can't do left handed threads and you can't feed it towards the tail-stock except by hand. There are people who have put on a reverse gearing on this type of lathe, but we have never needed to cut left hand threads so far. For what we do it is good. The speed of changing gears and speed on the V-belts has not been a big issue. I think it is nearly impossible to beat this for the price.

    4months on, still in love!

    So 4 months ago this arrived in my garage and I'm still in love with it! I would definitely recommend this to a first timer such as myself. My pops has been around lathes all his life and he has no complaints.

    Great lathe and very capable after getting it cleaned up it runs like a dream

    Love this new G9972Z!
    5/ 5stars

    My previous machine was a Grizzly 516 combo lathe,mill,drill. I removed the milling head and attached it to a milling table I found for it.
    I've had it for about 8 years and it's been a workhorse. I'm SO happy I decided to upgrade to the G9972Z! Changing feed-rates, and
    Rotation speed is so easy with the gearbox and belt system, it is smooth, quiet, everything feels solid and well made. I'm also thankful for the extra capacity.
    5" may not seem like much but when you are end drilling with a Silver and Demming 1" bit you need all the room you can get. Also like the ruler scale
    Engraved on the quill, both metric and standard. My G516 didn't have that. Only wish is the switch is a little out of the way on the top at the back. Wish it were at the front.
    The compound slide is easy to use and also well made. In addition the feet have a total of six attachment points very solid mount. Overall very happy.

    I am very happy!
