Recommended Buy! Great Machine.. 06/19/2020 4:49:42 AM

I bought the G0602 to go along with my G0704, and i can't be happier. Its a great machine. Out of the crate i will say i only had one small issue with it, and i have put some upgrades on it since then, a QCTP was a really nice upgrade for it. The small issue? The tailstock. The T-Nut that clamps the tailstock to the way's was pretty roughly machined on mine, and you really had to loosen the nut to get it to slide, 2-3 turns before it would slide without snagging. I cleaned up the T-Nut with a file and that helped but it was machined in such a way that it could rotate slighting, to big of a tolerance between it and the bottom of the ways, so it would snag when trying to slide. I did some more filing and then came up with an idea, a thick washer under the nut to take up some extra distance on the bolt and then a spring on the bolt between the T-Nut and the bottom of the tailstock, that helps push it away and keep it held away from the bottom of the ways, no more snagging. For the spring i took the springs from the two included chuck keys, i hate springs on chuck keys cause they always end up gathering junk, but if you take them both off one will sit inside the other, like a dual valvespring, then slide that over the bolt for the T-Nut on the tailstock and add some washers under the nut or make a spacer about 1/4" thick, this will allow you to loosen and tighten with a single swing of the wrench from side to side and slide easily if your T-Nut was as bad as mine. Other then that i haven't really had any issues with mine. The other problem with the tailstock is the anti-spin set screw on the top of it, it should be a dog point set screw to allow the tip of it to sit in the slot on the tailstock quill, but its not, and drilling with a 1/4" drill in mild steel i was able to spin the tailstock quill. I had to take it all apart, clean it, and then i took the original set screw and turned down the end since i didn't have a dog point set screw that size on hand and after reinstalling and assembly it worked a lot better, the set screw was no longer biting on the top edges of the slot and causing it to be stiff in movement, my tailstock oiler was also not right and no matter what i did i couldn't get oil to pass through it, so i installed a cup type oiler on it. Suffice it to say i put a lot of working into the tailstock, it was the only part of my lathe that just had a bunch of oddball issues with it. It was easy enough to work through them though and i chalk it up to learning this machine. I bought the optional stand for it, added a shelf for more storage in the middle, and i am quite happy with it! I 3d printed a bunch of tool holder hangers, a chuck key hanger, and a chuck holder for the tailstock chuck, keeps a lot of stuff out of the drawers and at my fingertips when i need them. Overall i would gladly buy it again, its a great machine, and i am glad i didn't go smaller with some little hobby mini lathe. The G0602 is small enough for most home shops and small jobs but can also really do some real work, i have pushed mine pretty good and get great results.

Perfect lathe for home and farm use 05/08/2020 2:41:13 PM

I raise beef cattle and hay, and own several pieces of equipment that is hard to get parts for. The G0602 metal lathe helps me keep them working. Great for making pins, bushings, etc. Already completed a couple projects and working on another one. Wished I had this years ago. Perfect size for garage or workshop. Great company to deal with. Customer service is number 1!!!

Very well made lathe. Ive had it for 10 days and it has plenty of power. Moving the drive motor to go to the high speed pulley is a little difficult so I purchased a 3L340 belt to replace the 3L330 and moved the tensioner 180 degrees, works perfect and savers moving the motor. Again I say its a great lathe.

Very nice machine for the price 11/20/2019 2:39:49 PM

I waiting a year to leave this review as I wanted to get some use prior. I use this lathe every single day in my home shop making rings and tools for ring making. I mainly work with titanium and really enjoy this lathe. Im able to take really deep cuts and get great finish on titanium.

Ive upgraded to a quick change tool post but the stock one worked for me for several months I just prefer qctp for operations requiring a lot of tool changes.

I highly recommend the 6 bolt compound upgrade from eBay. It made a world of difference for parting rigidity. Very easy mod to do as well.

The paint does chip easily as others mentioned but I bought this thing to use it hard with expectations of it being a Work horse. I oil my bearings regularly and havent gotten the squeak noise others have mentioned. The gear box is also leak free.

G0602 10x22 benchtop metal lathe 06/10/2019 12:57:15 AM

Dont know yet 05/15/2019 3:19:59 AM

Bought over a month ago. Appears to be well built. After a month of waiting for a back ordered accessory that is critical to my application Grizzly notified me they had no idea when it would be available. Ordered the part elsewhere an should have it soon.
Grizzly should consider a lift point for this extremely headstock heavy machine.
Looking forward to playing with my new lathe

Awesome machine 03/11/2019 3:27:50 AM

I recently bought this product as my first lathe. So far it has met or exceeded my expectations. I did however have a problem with the tail stock but all I had to do is call them and they took care of it right away They have great customer service. I would totally recommend buying one of these lathes if your in the market. They are great people to do business with and I hope to try out there other machines soon

Gets the job done 09/03/2018 5:47:15 PM

This product gets the job done. It is a good product for someone just getting into the trade. The accuracy of the machine is good enough for someone getting started, and you'll learn exactly what features you'll want in your next lathe. I was underwhelmed by the quality of the product. Upon arrival, there was some damage to the crate and the pulley cover was dented. Most of the castings have voids and extremely rough and sharp edges. I've given myself a lot of good cuts with sharp edges I keep finding. There were a lot of places where paint was chipped, missing, or in places it shouldn't be. The 3 jaw chuck that comes installed is completely stuck on the spindle. I have not been able to remove it and install the 4 jaw chuck.

It is a fine machine and a genuine value. In my own practice(s), I will most likely never push toward full capacity/capability. It will serve my expectations well. The construction is sound. The controls are easy to access. Changing belts is typical, though I will make some mods for the high ranges. Operator's manual is very good, as well. I had some questions - found Grizzly tech support excellent, patient, and genuinely interested in resolving all I had on my mind.

I would recommend this machine to any small hobbyist 06/02/2017 12:51:46 AM

I have had a great time with my little lathe. It has cut everything I have tried to without a problem. I will be converting it to CNC very soon. I would recommend this lathe to any home machinist.

Works for me. 06/02/2017 12:30:22 AM

This lathe works well for me. It has done everything I have asked it to do without complaint. My only complaint is, the section on threading in the manual left out two important steps. One is, to remove the spacer on the end of the lead screw, install the proper gear, and place the spacer on the shaft along with the cap screw, and washer. Two is, using a ten MM wrench loosen the center gear shaft on the lash adjuster and slide it to mesh with the gear on the lead screw. Then move the lash adjuster to mesh with the proper gear at the top, and tighten both the adjuster, and the center shaft. It took me awhile to figure this out, so I hope it saves some confusion for others.

I am not an expert with wood lathes, but I wanted something inexpensive that worked. It seems to be all I needed and you can't beat the price. BTW, I ordered the bed extension for it, but it was on back order and I am still waiting for it.

Outstanding Value, Great for Beginners 05/21/2017 11:32:11 AM

I've had this lathe now for a month, and it is my first lathe. It is put together well and runs very smoothly, and I have been able to accurately do all operations on steel - turning (with chucks and between centers), boring, threading, drilling, turning tapers. The size of the machine is small enough to make swapping spindle accessories by hand easy, but it is large enough to make many useful parts.
When I took delivery, I spent some time to disassemble, clean, and oil the slides, and tighten the gibs. Also, I deburred the exposed razor sharp edges, and cleaned and greased the change gears. The useful quill travel is short (about 2 1/4"), and a standard drill chuck arbor will limit travel even further, so I cut the end off of the drill chuck arbor to regain the full useful travel.
Overall, this machine is built to last, and is a joy to use. Given the price, it is an incredible value!

Great Product 03/18/2017 6:26:19 PM

Excellent machine. Stiff, tight, accurate and includes a nice set of accessories. This machine has outpreformed my expectations, easly holds +/-0.001 and with a little care I've been able to hold +/-0.0005.
Excellent customer service.

Typical Grizzly good value 01/31/2017 11:53:42 AM

I have owned and heavily used this lathe for about ten years. It is still nice and tight. I spent a lot of money on tooling and attachments which was no surprise.

It seems to have plenty of power. It is fairly precise and probably could be more precise if I were a better machinist. I have done model making, gunsmithing, parts making for equipment repair and probably much more that I can't think of.

The lathe is big enough for me but if I had a bigger shop, I would move to a larger machine.

This lathe along with a 2 horse bench-top mill replaced a Grizzly lathe mill drill. That machine was a disappointment. Too many compromises.

Lathe 10" X 22" G0602 01/29/2017 1:04:24 AM

I Believe as always with Grizzly Tools That this tool is great. I will be honest it is still sitting in the garage unused as of now but it all looks like it's going to work perfect. J.D.S. Don't forget to buy transmission oil you will need it to get started.

Good 01/25/2017 7:05:51 PM

The lathe is good but I regret it, I should have buyed the model with variable speed.
