I purchased this machine about a month ago and it has already served me well. I am quite impressed with it. Perfect for fabricating small parts. I recommend this machine for the novice home machinist.
I have been using mini lathes for several years now and this is my third one. (I now have four and I use them all.) Comparing it to other lathes of comparable size, it is quite nice. Grizzly adds some nice touches like including a steady rest and the built in speed display. The thing I do not like is the tailstock. When I first saw this lathe listed, I really liked the look of the tailstock, and the product description even says, "First and foremost, it features a special "Big Boy" tailstock, designed with the same convenient quick-locking controls and extra-long footprint previously only found on our much larger lathes." It is nice with the locking lever, but that is all. You crank the quill back all the way to eject whatever you have inserted in the tailstock, but this one does not crank back far enough to eject many of the MT2 accessories that I have, including the dead center that came with this lathe. I had to disassemble the tailstock several times, to get dead centers and chucks out of the tailstock. Finally I put the tailstock leadscrew on one of my other lathes, drilled & tapped a hole in the end and inserted a screw in it to lengthen it enough to properly eject. This is a good lathe altogether, but the tailstock needs some work.
