You Can't Lose With This Machine 5/17/2018

We have been using the grizzly model G4003 for the past ten years in our business. We have ran through three of them and two have had issues with the gears in the gearbox getting debris in them and wearing out prematurely. The gears are wide open to contamination from underneath. Parts to fix the latest one have been on order for five months. We have switched to the G0750 with an enclosed oil sump gearbox and hopefully the dirt will be sealed out and we can run it for several years before wearing it out. Our lathes get used 5 to 7 hours per day continuously five days a week and the grizzly lathes perform very well under these high demand conditions. We have purchased the more expensive West Bend lathes and have had about the same life span as the less expensive Grizzly Lathes. Save your money and get a Grizzly. You won't be disappointed. This lathe comes with six 12-1.75mm bolts to secure it to the bed and stands. You actually need 14-2mm bolts to accomplish this step.

I bought the G0750g a year and a half ago. The shipping crate had been punctured right through with a fork lift. Miraculously, no damage other than scratched paint which Grizzly sent me. There were also a few missing parts which Grizzly also sent me. The lathe has been wonderful to date. The precision is much better than expected. Parts can easily be dialed in and machined to less than a ten thousandth (0.0001). There are more threads (yes, even standard threads) than indicated on the chart and product description. Just fill in the blanks in the thread setting chart and use them! A few are duplicates (probably why they are blank) but sometimes that means no gear change! Floor mounting and levelling the lathe is a PIA because the mounting holes in the cabinets are not accessible from inside the cabinets or even from above. You have to place the assembled lathe on the floor, mark the locations, move the lathe, and install the floor studs. Good luck getting the cabinets back where they belong... Most of the wrenches and tools that come with the unit are total complete junk. Plan on replacing them. The light bulb is unique and impossible to find anyplace else. Plan on replacing or retrofitting it for standard bulbs - it really sucks waiting for bulbs from Grizzly. In fact the first ones I got were not even the right ones, but they did send me the correct ones after I called. Make sure you index the 3 jaw to get the lowest runout and then mark it. Mine holds about 1.5 thou after 18 months of use - not bad at all. But get a decent collet chuck for better repeatability, accuracy, and ease of use. Power and rigidity of this lathe are excellent. I've done some work that would have brought similar machines to their knees. Backlash on all three spools is MUCH worse than expected and continues to get even worse over time. It can be tightened up a bit using the built in backlash adjustments, but they are quite crude and don't work well - friction gets unacceptable long before reasonable backlash is achieved. The angle index on the compound is reasonably accurate, but WAY too limited - it should extend at least half way around the post and include both increasing and decreasing scales. I put extra index marks at the plus and minus 30 degree point so I could use it beyond 30 degrees. Friction on the three zeroing collars is also either too tight or too loose and the friction adjustments (just set screws) do not work well at all. The rear spider screw holes and threads are too loose (the screws feel like they will fall out) so I made new screws with non-standard thread diameters. I know you get what you pay for, but it would have been very easy to fix most of my complaints without increasing the price very much at all. All these issues aside, the lathe produces outstanding results on every job I have done on it and I am very happy with it. I would buy it again in a heart beat.

I have had the G0750 lathe for 2 years and have been able to put some "miles on it" so to speak. I waited to review so I could speak from experience. I have been more than satisfied with the over all performance of the lathe and its accuracy. The Fit and Finish are reflected in the price point, don't expect a showroom finish on the details. there will be chipped paint and overspray here and there but does not effect the usability of the machine. The machined parts are impressive in my opinion, from the change gears to the cross slides and bed and ways the ground surfaces were flawless. The accuracy has been very good, if I am doing my part it will hold within a thou all day long. The three jaw chuck had 1.5 thou run out new and has crept to 3. All other accessories have functioned very well. The things you should know: the lathe is designed to be a metric machine and it is reflected in the threading gears if you plan to do a lot of threading you will be changing gears, however it is not difficult just time consuming. I used the lathe for several months before taking the cross slide apart to clean and check, what I found was mildly concerning. there was quite a bit of cast iron grit in the nooks and crannies. I have also found small amounts in the gear boxes. If I had it to do over I would have cleaned it first, it would have helped to learn about the machine before use. Over all I am very pleased with the lathe, I have had many hours of enjoyment and it is hard to imagine my shop without it.

Worth the price. 2/9/2018

I have had this lathe for 6 months. This is my second lathe. The first one is a Logan 200.
The amount of HP in this machine is impressiveness. It is relatively quiet. There are no oil leaks. The electrical panel opens only to the back. So account for this when planning an instillation. The 3-jaw chuck is solid. The tail stock is undersized. I replaced it with a larger chuck from Grizzly. An hour meter to show the actual running time would be great. I have no major complaints. I have found that the change gears were covered with some type of abrasive. Probably part of the manufacturing process. The abrasive caused the gears to wear slightly. There became covered with a gray slime. I rinsed the gears with solvent and it seems to have solved the problem.

Only a few issues with the crate, obviously it was handled a bit rough as it was broken inside. Only damage seemed to be the tailstock pin being bent a little but it has no effect on the operation of the lathe. I ordered oil for the headstock to replace it as outlined in the manual after break-in however it was empty so I had to spend another $65 for another gallon of oil and wait for it to arrive before pressing the lathe into service. I called tech support about the issue and they did not offer to compensate for the extra gallon. Other than that the lathe seems to be of good design and should last a long time.
