I bought the G0750g a year and a half ago. The shipping crate had been punctured right through with a fork lift. Miraculously, no damage other than scratched paint which Grizzly sent me. There were also a few missing parts which Grizzly also sent me. The lathe has been wonderful to date. The precision is much better than expected. Parts can easily be dialed in and machined to less than a ten thousandth (0.0001). There are more threads (yes, even standard threads) than indicated on the chart and product description. Just fill in the blanks in the thread setting chart and use them! A few are duplicates (probably why they are blank) but sometimes that means no gear change! Floor mounting and levelling the lathe is a PIA because the mounting holes in the cabinets are not accessible from inside the cabinets or even from above. You have to place the assembled lathe on the floor, mark the locations, move the lathe, and install the floor studs. Good luck getting the cabinets back where they belong... Most of the wrenches and tools that come with the unit are total complete junk. Plan on replacing them. The light bulb is unique and impossible to find anyplace else. Plan on replacing or retrofitting it for standard bulbs - it really sucks waiting for bulbs from Grizzly. In fact the first ones I got were not even the right ones, but they did send me the correct ones after I called. Make sure you index the 3 jaw to get the lowest runout and then mark it. Mine holds about 1.5 thou after 18 months of use - not bad at all. But get a decent collet chuck for better repeatability, accuracy, and ease of use. Power and rigidity of this lathe are excellent. I've done some work that would have brought similar machines to their knees. Backlash on all three spools is MUCH worse than expected and continues to get even worse over time. It can be tightened up a bit using the built in backlash adjustments, but they are quite crude and don't work well - friction gets unacceptable long before reasonable backlash is achieved. The angle index on the compound is reasonably accurate, but WAY too limited - it should extend at least half way around the post and include both increasing and decreasing scales. I put extra index marks at the plus and minus 30 degree point so I could use it beyond 30 degrees. Friction on the three zeroing collars is also either too tight or too loose and the friction adjustments (just set screws) do not work well at all. The rear spider screw holes and threads are too loose (the screws feel like they will fall out) so I made new screws with non-standard thread diameters. I know you get what you pay for, but it would have been very easy to fix most of my complaints without increasing the price very much at all. All these issues aside, the lathe produces outstanding results on every job I have done on it and I am very happy with it. I would buy it again in a heart beat.
