'This was a really fun project! I was talking to my gunsmith one day and he mentioned that he was frustrated with the lathe he had and that no one made a lathe specifically for gunsmithing. I asked him what kind of features he would like to see. He gave me a "laundry" list that included super high precision spindle bearings with high precision ground gears, a tailstock that was precisely tuned at the factory with a lock that could accommodate a torque wrench (the tailstock center can be torqued down to bring it to exact center with the spindle center), two coolant nozzles for chambering, a longer tailstock for precise barrel support, support screws for outboard part of the spindle, etc...To make a long story short, we have incorporated all those features to come up with the first lathe ever to be designed specifically for gunsmithing. Check it out!'

Nice Lathe , Junk tool post 09/07/2018 3:28:32 PM

The lathe its self is great, however for the price charged they could include a Quick Change tool post that isn't absolute garbage

-the release lever is positioned over the dove tale it releases, so you cant install or remove the tool
-the release lever points over the work piece and towards the chuck when engaged
-the "pistons" that lock the tool holder to the post do not retract enough for the tool holder to slide on to the dove tale

I did contact customer service before leaving this review and they stated that how its supposed to be.

would say either discount the machine and don't include it or charge a bit more and include a tool post that is as nice as the rest of the machine
