    G8688 7" x 12" Mini Metal Lathe purchase review
    5/ 5stars

    The G8688 7" x 12" Mini Metal Lathe was a good purchase for me. I'm new to metal working and have already broken a couple cutting tools and blown a fuse, but the machine was straight forward to setup and learn so I'm routinely producing parts with about 1 to 2 mil accuracy and expect to improve. The best part of the purchase was the Grizzly team! They went out of their way to make shipping and delivery a good experience for me. And, I had a technical issue just after purchase that they bent over backwards to make right. Excellent team!

    Excellent Value
    5/ 5stars

    Grizzly is known for high quality shop machinery, and this lathe is no exception. It has a relatively small footprint, but provides exceptional capability for its small size. I needed a bench top lathe for making small parts for model trains, and this unit is a perfect fit at a competitive price.
