After owning this lathe for a couple of years I feel I now know enough about it to write a good review for you. I have used Monarch's, Hardinge, Mori Seiki, American and many other lathes in my work as a Machinist. I can unequivocally recommend this lathe to anyone compared to any other lathe at any price. It is slightly lighter duty than the other lathes mentioned, but it is not lower in precision. The lathe works as it is supposed to. Oh, and did I mention that I did not have to repair it? If you want to repair and hand scrape machine tools instead of use them, pay the same price as this lathe and buy a worn out old machine that you can work hard on for a year or two. If you want to use the machine instead, buy this one. The things that are not quite as high quality as a lathe costing eight times as much are not of major consequence. This lathe is straight and stays straight if you level it regularly. I can think of no reason anybody would be unhappy with this machine at all. A fabulous machine for very little money. What more could you possibly ask?
