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.
