T-slot should be standard on the compound slide for quick tool post.

Nice little hobby machine, but for thousand bucks, a T-slot should be STANDARD on the compound slide for quick tool post. Please re-design.

I purchased this machine originally back in May, but it arrived damaged so I refused delivery and Grizzly sent me another one. Since then, I have experimented with the machine and found that it has tight tolerances, which is a great thing. The end gears NOT being nylon was an awesome upgrade. I recently installed a QCTP because I got really tired at having to shim up the cutters - something which should come included. Also, the cross slide/boss problem is an issue, but not insurmountable. I am overall pleased with the presentation and usefulness of the tool and have (since June) put it to use on several house projects (we own a completely custom home so nothing is standard) that without it, I would be at a loss. I think that lathes are, in general, the grandfather of all machine tools and for any DIYer, essential.

The variable speed capability is a huge deal for me, and one that really pushed this model over the top. Overall, I am pleased with the machine.

Recently purchased because of the size. I'm a retired tool and die maker that wanted a "hobby" lathe. I'm very surprised at the feed cuts I'm able to take. I was concerned with it being only a 3/4 hp motor. It takes them with ease (steel and hard steel). You can lock the carrage for face cuts by putting the carrage direction in netural and engageing the carrage feed lever(to lock the half nuts). The dial measurements are very accurate (checked with dial indicator). I came well packed by ups freight. Make sure you do the bearing run-in (see owners manual-set up instructions) to save your self headaches in the future. This is a VERY WELL made machine, I'm VERY IMPRESSED with it. HIGHLY RECOMENDED !!!!!
