Bring home the functionality and features of a much larger lathe with this compact G0838 16" x 24" Variable-Speed Wood Lathe. Don't let it's small size fool you, this stout machine has plenty to offer. With a 2 HP 3-phase motor using a VFD to operate on single-phase 220V power, this lathe gives you the extra torque needed for turning hard woods at really low speeds. Additionally, the headstock slides along the precision-ground cast iron bed and can be locked in place on the tailstock side for outboard turning of much larger pieces. This machine is a bowl-turner's dream!

A well built lathe 06/15/2019 1:42:37 PM

This lathe has exceeded my expectations. It is well built, smooth operating, and easy to clean up. The lathe replaced an old lathe that was over 60 years old and I wished I had purchased it sooner. I purchased the T28372 Bed/Tool Post Extension for the lathe and mounted it on the end of the lathe for storage (see photo).

I purchased my GO838 11-10-18. the lathe is great for turning small bowls, but when i looked into the outboard turning, the lathe will only turn a 16" bowl. 28" would be a flat or very shallow platter. grizzly said they have nothing in works to actually turn larger bowls. lathe still works great!

I enjoyed my new lathe I'm having a good time with it.The only thing I was upset about it was when you jack the price up on it when the tariffs had name been put in place yet

Just received 09/01/2018 10:17:57 AM

I just received my machine. I had a problem with the head stock, but Grizzly took care of it immediately. I cant say enough about their customer service. Ive turn a small bowl just to check out some of the features. The machine runs smooth and appears to have plenty of power. Ill put in another review later.
