After much debating over which Grizzly Lathe to buy, Grizzly decided to put this South Bend lathe on sale. I had a really hard time ponying up the extra cash, but wow, I am glad I did. This is one nice machine. It arrived a few days after I ordered it in a super heavy duty crate. Unloading it from the UPS truck was a bit of a nerve wracking time. I would suggest going very slow and carefully. It is really top heavy and will move around quite a bit on the pallet. Anyhow, I finally got it into my shop and off the pallet, and after an hour of so of cleaning the rust preventative off the machine I was able to give it a good looking over. This machine appears to be made very well. All the controls are silky smooth. I can't wait to start cutting some chips on this machine. I couldn't be happier with my purchase so far. I will give a detailed review once I start using it. Thank you Grizzly for offering machines that the average Joe can afford!
