G0776 13" x 40" Gunsmithing Lathe with DRO

A precise lathe with a spider mount and DRO.

The G0776 13" x 40" Gunsmithing Lathe with DRO is called a "gunsmithing" lathe because it has features typically not found on standard lathes, such as a "spider" mount system and a large 1.57" (40mm) spindle bore.

The spider is especially designed for supporting gun barrels during chambering operations; however, it is a great support option for almost any long workpiece that extends through the outboard end of the spindle.

Supplied with a 2 HP motor, the 8-speed gearhead of the G0776 produces spindle speeds from 70-2000 RPM.

This lathe features a 200 series quick-change tool post. Tool holders can be quickly loaded and unloaded using the lock lever and rotated by loosening the top nut.

The G0776 includes a two-axis digital readout, so accuracy and precision are ensured!

Grizzly gunsmithing lathes feature a foot brake that also acts as a safety device and can bring the machine to an quick stop.

The G0776 also comes with a D1-4 spindle, halogen work light, flood coolant system and a pull-out chip tray.

Like all Grizzly gunsmithing lathes, the G0776 comes with a 1-year warranty covering parts and assuring the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The G0776 manual was written by our U.S. based Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy to read manual provides full instructions on how to assemble and maintain your lathe.

The Grizzly Technical Support team is U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the lathe are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

Really nice machine 05/09/2020 5:11:46 PM

It arrived unharmed, crated nicely. Unloading was easy as I have a forklift. Upon opening the crate, there is no damage and no rust. Machine looks and feels very nice. I cannot review its functionality oh, but I have no doubt it will be fine after seeing several other reviews on its capabilities. Shop should be completed by the end of summer.

Great lathe machine ! 03/22/2020 7:00:01 PM

I bought this a month ago and I really like it . It arrived in great condition and runs great. I am a amateur beginner and needed a strong lathe . I am turning and cutting off hardened steel and so far this lathe is doing well for my projects. Should of bought this a long time ago .

Good lathe, could use a few minor improvements 02/20/2020 3:42:02 PM

Lathe order and delivery time was excellent. Lathe packaging was not damage and no damage was noted on the lathe nor accessories. Screws were missing from part of the base but were found on the bottom of the shipping crate - with that I went and checked the status of every fastener that I could access to ensure they were tight just as a precaution. Installation, setup and run-in was easy enough. It operates smoothly in all aspects. As pointed out in another review the chucks are not the best but adequate for the work I intend to do. Some areas of improvement: One key component to selecting this lathe was the coolant system. I work with a lot of SS so it is necessary. Even though my lathe is level on all planes, the coolant tray is not angled correctly so that coolant pools on the end opposite of the drain. I have not had time to investigate a correction on this yet. Another other issue is the pump and reservoir - the pump is not mounted to the reservoir since doing so would prevent you from removing the reservoir to fill and clean. I did find the mounting screws in the bottom of the reservoir (found when checking fastener tightness, they would have damage the pump if I hadn't noticed them). But as a result of the pump not being secured to the reservoir nor any adequate means to secure the reservoir under the drain chute results in frequent leakage of coolant on to the floor. At first I thought is was the pump power cord and flex pipe finding their way under the returning fluid - I ended up tie-wrapping those out of the way but still have the leakage problem. The final coolant issue is the bed Gap plate. It has deep recesses that accumulate coolant - not a deal breaker but quite an annoyance when cleaning after use. This could be alleviated by providing plastic covers to cover the bolts and recesses (or at least providing drain holes).

I was surprised the lathe did not come with an MT3 taper drill chuck for the tail stock but it is not an issue for me as I have several already.

Overall I like the lathe and it has been making quality parts for me. I will have to work through the annoyances ;-).

Got it about a month ago. Very nice lathe. I like the foot brake feature, nice safety feature. Seems like a nicely built machine for a import unit. I would recommend this to others. Thanks.

great customer support 03/21/2019 12:59:49 PM

We received the lathe damaged. Something had broken through the top of the crate and scratched the top of the electrical control box all the way across the top. The front cover above the foot break had come loose and fell off scratching the cabinet a little bit. The crating leaves a lot to be desired. That said Grizzly was all over this issue. We sent pictures of the damage and they ordered and shipped the parts to us with touch up paint included. Kind of a pain switching out the electrical box but now we have a scratch free lathe just waiting for us to scratch it ourselves! Have yet to use the lathe, just finished the break in procedure and everything is working like it should. Grizzly definitely supports their products.

Love this lathe. 10/31/2018 5:46:58 PM

A great, solid, medium-sized lathe at a great price with a lot of extras. I bought mine for gunsmithing and it works great. I find it very easy to use and I use it every day.

The geared headstock makes spindle speed changes easy and fast. Takes longer to calculate the spindle speed than it does to set it. My lathe shipped without oil in the headstock (but it had oil in the quick-change gearbox and saddle apron), so don't forget to check yours before use.

The quick-change gearbox is very intuitive after you use it once or twice, then you find yourself using it for every job. It's nice that it is sealed, making it pretty quiet (as lathe gearboxes go). The oil bath lubrication makes it fairly maintenance free during normal use and easy to do when an oil change is required. The oil sight glasses are nice for keeping tabs on its level and condition.

The end change-gears that connect the headstock to the quick change gearbox are good for a range of thread pitches and feed speeds. The ones that come installed are perfect for the most common inch threads and average feeds. They are easy to change (only two nuts to loosen and two bolts to remove) if you need other inch threads, metric threads, or a different feed rate. The first time you do that gear change, it takes about 15-minutes. After that, it's only about a 5-minute deal. Though this machine was made in China and uses metric fasteners, the leadscrew is a true-inch unit and not a metric unit that utilizes the change gears to get to inch threads.

The saddle and cross slide, compound rest, and the tailstock are all smooth operating and accurate in their movements. I wouldn't describe them as "like glass", but still very good. The bed, headstock and gearbox are all heavy, stable cast parts that are well machined and ground plus hardened where needed. The tool post is a nice 200-series quick-change, piston variety and comes with two toolholders, which is actually a pretty nice start. You'll buy many more, but it's nice that Grizzly included a few. The piston style tool post is not the latest technology in tool post design, but it still works great and has enough repeatable accuracy for the average home workshop or part-time machinist. I have no plans to replace mine.

The stand, though made of steel instead of being cast is a great component and is of high quality. Mine had a pretty nice finish. It is stable and up to the task. The anchor bolt holes, however, will be a little difficult to work with whether you use bolts, studs or mounting feet. There is limited clearance for a wrench, so you've only got about a 1/4th-of-a-turn or so per pull when tightening the nuts. The pull-out chip tray is easily my favorite feature of the stand. It is so much easier to clean up than without one. Foot brake is nice when you need it, but I have yet to use mine.

The DRO is almost a mandatory accessory, in my opinion. This one is very accurate and repeatable. I have learned to trust it far more than the handwheel graduations. I did adjust the precision down from millionths(!) to show only ten-thousandths. Works very good, but Grizzly needs to get someone who speaks English to re-write a true English version of the manual. Seems like it's been written in English by a Chinese editor who doesn't speak English very well.

The chucks and faceplate supplied with mine are fairly good units, though there are obviously much better available out there. You'll pay dearly for those. These Grizzly units seem pretty well made overall with good balance, little runout and decent repeatability. I took mine apart and basically rebuilt them, (which is not hard at all) because they needed a serious deburring, which kept them from feeling nice and smooth initially. All good now though.

All in all, I'd say an excellent buy at an amazing value.

Good product 07/20/2018 11:22:59 AM

Machine came in good conditions. Works well. Sometimes the switching the speed gears is hard.In general it is a good piece of equipment.

Lathe - Rock steady-- Steady rest & Coolant hose better suited to a vacuum. 04/24/2018 9:18:41 PM

I bought this lathe about two years and have nothing but praise for it. It has plenty of power for cutting and boring. Threading barrels is very easy and the results are as good as the operator.The DRO is a real plus but the instructions for the DRO are -- technical-- The lathe manual for the lathe is first rate. There is also a good collection of literature that is helpful for working on barrels, and more for general lathe, milling and machine work that I have also discovered at Grizzly.... I would give five stars if I had not run into a couple of things that just are not up to the same standard as the lathe itself. These items appear to be manufactured by a different company as the quality is just not as good as the lathe. Specifically, the steady rest is not machined well and the metal not the same as the lathe.the surfaces are not as "clean." The tapped holes to lock the steady rest roller arms stripped with the first touch of the wrench. The coolant hose is covered with a nice nickle finished housing, too bad the coupling for the housing and fittings is a poorly chosen plastic piece that barely survived the first month I could not find that piece or even a suitable replacement anywhere, not even in the very complete parts list in the manual. And the last thing is a time issue as much as anything, since. we all know that setups are the thing that kills profit in many contracts. I am complaining about the amount of time is takes to switch gears for thread pitches and feed rates. Changing gears is messy and time consuming On the bright side, I have reduced the number of setups for any particular thing we manufacture. Another plus side item, I find myself using this lathe to make prototypes and small things rather than firing up the 15 hp CNC that is supposed to meet our vast array of challenging projects. Properly setup and running this is a great lathe for one to a few items at a time. This is the most used Lathe in our shop. I changed my mind, This is an excellent lathe. The two parts mentioned before might be better suited to a vacuum. They suck..

GO 776 lathe w/ DRO 03/01/2018 8:11:43 PM

I have used this lathe for a year or so, it is a very good product for its price. The tail stock chuck is not as good as more expensive one but you an upgrade. I am still learn, I am not a trained machinist. You should understand that the lathe is just the tip of the ice burg, you will need many tools to make items, i.e.; collet chuck, cutting tools, collets, etc.

Grizzle's technical support was very good and that is why I purchased the lathe from Grizzle.

Great Lathe & Perfect size. 10/28/2017 11:28:58 AM

I bought this lathe because the price was right and I knew a friend that had one and was very satisfied. I've had it over a year now and it's been great, I've had no problems with it at all and the accuracy of it is dead on.

it's early yet , only a few hours on it but it still has some gear noise , manual is good but has some room for improvement [ read it twice before starting ] overall good machine for the price and features you can't beat it

Awesome Machine 01/26/2017 12:39:45 AM

After leveling (no small feat) and running the break in procedure. Checked runnout on chuck (almost zero) and tailstock alignment, really happy with the unit. one grip, the coolant flexible nozzle leaks like a sieve, replaced it with a flexible plastic piece.

Purchased Dec 15, 2016 The lathe was delivered 4 days after ordering. I was very happy with quality of crating. After getting lathe fastened to floor and leveled, ran the breakin, changed oil in gearbox. The lathe runs quiet and run out so far is very good. The manual for the DRO is not very good but a couple searches on internet answered my questions. overall very pleased with lathe.

Good Lathe for the price! 11/17/2016 11:36:52 PM

This lathe is pretty good for the price, very accurate with the DRO. I had some trouble with the coolant pump and the terminal block on the drive motor, both resolved fairly quickly by Grizzly. The only minor complaints I have are the hand dials, they're not very accurate (I checked them against the DRO and a dial indicator) and would be a problem if the DRO stopped working, and it's just a little noisier than I would like. I did run the break-in procedure, and it may quiet down a little more with time, it's not that bad, and maybe Grizzly could make a more accurate set of dials available.

DRO only displays metric measurements. 06/25/2016 10:38:04 PM

Bought this lathe less than a month ago. Pleased with the lathe , but it does not seem to display inches with the DRO (only metric) readout. That would have been important to know before buying as I would not have purchased the lathe including the DRO. Because of that I only gave it 3 stars. If someone can tell me how to display inches instead of metric I will give it 5 stars.
