    nicest lathe I've ever used 09/23/2019 7:40:38 PM

    It doesn't have a wheel on the outboard of the head stock, which isn't really a thing I guess, but I kinda miss one. Other than that I can turn finials too delicate to be useful or turn massive table legs. I haven't turned a big bowl yet but I've got a big segmented bowl gluing up!

    Effective and good value 03/28/2019 2:39:41 PM

    I bought this a month ago and works very well. It is heavy, so be sure to get help with assembly (packaging was amazing!) and locate where you will not have to move it much. Very easy to use and add to (I ordered the premium chuck set). Only complaint is the banjo/tool rest. The arm itself is very unstable and very difficult to secure in place and not move. I eventually just removed the extension arm and used just the back with an off the market tool post/tool rest. I attempted several times to ask customer service about another banjo from another lathe - but kept getting it will not fit.

    Overall I am very happy! Only thing keeping me from 5 stars is the tool rest issue

    The outboard turning option is what I was after. The lathe was extremely well packaged and arrived damage free. It is heavy duty and well made.
    To minimize shipping issues, stay on top of any shipping instructions requested made at the time of purchase. There seems to be a huge disconnect between the order desk and the shipping department.

    Just arrived today. Will let you know when set up how turns. Very Fast time for delivery no problems with that. So until setup will let you know. Ok this is my first spindle turning. And it turned very well no problems. Set up and putting Lathe together was not a problem at all. So as of right now could not be more pleased. Was a welder for 45years Fabrication Lots of forged iron and brass. Very exited with working with wood.

    Everything I expected! 10/27/2018 2:06:56 PM

    So far I am more than impressed with this lathe, after reading all the reviews I took the proactive approach during assembly, as I unpacked and checked all the parts I cleaned, degreased and waxed all the parts, I couldnt find metric locking nuts for the headstock and tailstock base plates but a little blue thread locker seems to have solved the nuts vibrating loose problem others noted as an issue, I also used thread locker on every assembly step as needed, once fully assembled I set her on solid rubber isolation pads, only had her a month now but have turned out a dozen larger bowls from rough cut Timber and have had no issues or problems at all, the only thing missing in my opinion is reverse...

    There are so many things I really like about this lathe. For 16 years I used a craftsman wood lathe and really enjoyed it. However, just like me it wore out. So I never had an occasion to use any of your products, but I can only say thank you for not only the equipment t but your service. Form the very first phone call to the end result of judging the product I am so pleased. I wished I could remember the lady's name that I talked with on the phone but she was so kind and helpful in placing my order and assuring that it would be delivered within. The time period she said it would be. As for the lathe, WOW. It has been 16 years since I have really enjoyed wood turning like I do now. Im sure you have many more great products to choose from as I see in your catalog, so Grizzly here we go. Weve got a lot of work to do together. THANK YOU.

    Good lathe overall. 04/30/2018 1:40:34 AM

    I've turned about 60 projects on my G0462 since receiving it. Delivery packaging was solid, arrived with no issues. It does the job well. A little noisy at lower RPMs, but gets quieter when you step up the speed. The base is solid cast iron which is an upgrade over lower end lathes. That additional weight does help. It does bounce on you with larger (even slightly) unbalanced blanks. The only knock on this is the lack of lower end speeds. You really have to get your blanks balanced very well before turning or you'll be fighting the equipment through the first half of your project. Would I recommend this lathe? Yep, no hesitation. I can't afford a Cadillac of a lathe, so this more than does the job. You can turn beautiful projects on this lathe.

    Awesome machine 04/23/2018 1:35:17 PM

    I had bought a second hand grizzly wood lathe and had to retire it, due to not being able to order parts (discontinued). After much research this is the one that I picked knowing I will not have to buy another. The only flaw I see with this model is the location of the pivot lock on the motor I have pinched my finger between the base and motor a few times (it don't tickle), but all in all a great machine. I don't get on it as much as I would like to, but when I do it is hours before I call it a day. I have turned mini ball bats, bowls and candlesticks. I'm not tech savvy enough to upload pictures yet.

    It is ok with a few problems 04/21/2018 10:47:25 AM

    The locking screw handle for the tool rest stripped out. I replaced it with a 10mm socket head cap screw.
    Also the tool rest does not go low enough for my carbide detail tool. At its lowest point my tool is still
    1/8" above the the center of my work piece.
    That being said it is good for the price. A few small changes would make it a lot better.

    So much fun! 04/16/2018 5:09:19 AM

    Bought this after having to turn down several orders for larger bowls and platters. I went from a 10x18 to this beast so it took a while to get used too but it is a great piece of equipment for the price. The only issue so far is the ball oiler popped out of the spring but after contacting Customer Service (which is AMAZING) they are working on trying to find a solution to the problem since I guess I am a first at something.....FINALLY! Super happy with it and again the Customer Service is AMAZING.

    Great price 04/14/2018 11:53:52 PM

    This lathe does NOT come with a handwheel. Also the thread pattern to mount one is very unusual. An email to Grizzly and two phone calls could not help me. They cannot even get a bolt from the manufacturer. Grizzly did give me the thread pattern and it looks like I can get a high priced one from India. The lathe itself is awesome

    Ehh, Its OK I guess. 04/07/2018 6:03:08 PM

    I've had this lathe since May of 2013, and during all this time I have had to replace the drive belt over 20 times. I got one belt from Grizzly and took it to NAPA to get matches. Overall, I'm not entirely satisfied with this lathe. I wish I had saved up and bought a Nova. This lathe has an advertised minimum speed of 600 rpm (too high for safely roughing out anything), but mine has NEVER operated below 1000 rpm! Technical Service is a joke. All they have is a book of basic questions and answers and no real technical expertise. So, for the most part, my lathe is primarily a dust magnet and takes up valuable space in my shop. The saddest part of all this is that I really love making things on a lathe. Nonetheless, I've bought my last tool from Grizzly. Much like Harbor Freight, Grizzly products really are not worth the money. As I am able, I am weeding out my Grizzly tools (and I've got a lot of them) and replacing them with higher quality products from Laguna, Nova, and Saw Stop.

    The cast iron casting of the leading edge of the right leg was very poor. I was able to file the sharp edge down to the point it would not cut me when using. I have purchased several pieces of equipment and it should have been caught by a quality control person.

    I bought this lathe about a month ago and put a duplicator on it. I've turned 400 legs with it so far and it does not lack in power. It's heavy and does everything I need, shipping was fast. The tool rest that came with mine looks a little beat up right where your tools run, bad casting, that's my only complaint.

    Great Lathe for the Price 02/05/2018 3:27:40 AM

    First off, the customer service is outstanding. As for the lathe, you can't find a much better deal for a lathe with a 16-inch swing. Very sturdily built, and the only issue I have is that the low speed setting is a little too fast for roughing larger out-of-round pieces. It is a great lathe, well worth the price.

    Good Lathe, Tool Rest needs improvement. 11/28/2017 7:41:33 PM

    I bought this lathe recently and am very pleased with the performance and overall manufacture. The one drawback, the tool rest post is 25mm and the rest itself is just too large for smaller projects, they need to redesign the banjo post size to 1 inch. I do not like drilling out the banjo so went to another brand for the tool rests with a 25mm post. The in store staff suggested buying another tool rest from them and cutting it off, not a good recommendation. I would recommend this lathe, no question.

    Great machine in this price range! 11/08/2017 12:12:36 PM

    Firstoff as a recently retired 42 year veteran Tool Maker and Mfg Engineer in the metal working business, Im a hard man to please. Ive designed, proto-typed, machined metal parts and even built entire machines of many types, including aircraft, machine tool, firearm and the medical industries. I am also an avid researcher. While looking at the reviews on this machine, everywhere I could look, I saw very mixed reviews. Of course I took the time and analyzed the best and worst. A lot of the 'bad' reviews I came across, well, were ridiculous. You cannot run the Indy 500 in a Chevette .................. nor will you turn a 20" bowl with this machine without issues. You get the drift.<br /><br />I looked at several companies and lathes before pulling the trigger on this one. First, the size, swing and length fit what I wanted one for. I did not buy it to turn 20" bowls nor did I expect it to turn telephone pole size work pieces. <br />What I HAVE been doing successfully is turning (so far) up to 10" or so bowls, table legs, and other smaller spindle type pcs with no problem.<br />Do I wish it had a slower speed for roughing?? Of course. But Ive had no problems. With the spindle/pulley design, which is better than changing belts/pulleys for different speeds, I suspect very much lower RPM would lose torque pretty quickly.<br />Have I had any problems? Yes. Ive had some minor issues that Vince and the Support team have quickly taken care of and I'll say one thing, these folks have World Class Customer Support and I thank them.<br />One last comment. I would challenge anyone to find a better value, in this price range, for a lathe.<br />Dont buy it expecting it to do way over its capacity and what it was designed for and I think you will be pleased.<br />

    Update: Ive had mine for about 1 1/2 years. Ive got used to the noise. Lol.

    I will still say have a few extra tool rest Handles in stock as they wear out fast. And no, Im not overrightening.

    I maintain what I said. Pretty good machine for the cheap price.

    Amazing Product 08/25/2017 3:01:38 PM

    Is this a top of the line lathe? No. Can you find something much better? Yes. But here's the kicker. This lathe is absolutely, hands down, the markets best for the price. Sure, you can go by a top brand, high quality lathe but expect to empty your bank account for it. Keep in mind, this isn't some cheap toy. It is a superior piece of workmanship, complete with stand, digital readout and all the bells and whistles you'd expect from an expensive model. Top it all off with a powerful 2 HP motor and you are all set. I've been turning pieces 14" and larger since I bought it and I've had no issues. I spent a lot of time shopping for the best value and this is it. If you think you can beat it, good luck!

    Getting used to it, I have had an issue with losing speed and stopping the spindle, but it is not the motor. I have spoken with a tech and they suggested oiling the pulleys, which is really the only maintenance suggested in manual on a regular basis. No cause for alarm yet.

    ok at best 07/16/2017 4:39:18 PM

    I have a problem with the part that holds the tool rest. I think its called the banjo? It seems like every time I move it to a new position I have to reach under and tighten the nut that holds it so that the cam lock will engage properly. It would also be helpful to have a handle on the left side of the spindle to hold onto when changing the chuck out. An indexing spindle lock would be nice. And I can see the need for the tool remover rod to break the taper lock on the headstock side of the lathe but it would be nice to have the tailstock taper release when the hand wheel is backed out all the way. Last but not least 500+ rpm as the slowest speed is sometimes too fast for some out of balance work for a beginner like me.

    Tool rest adjustment handle assembly 07/08/2017 8:13:20 PM

    I've had the G0462 Wood Lathe for about 5 months. After using the lathe 4-5 times a week during this period, the Model: P0584057 handle assembly for adjusting the position of the tool rest failed. The hex connection between the threaded bolt and the spring-mounted adjustable handle has stripped. It appears to me that the recess on the inside of the handle is not deep enough to allow enough of a bearing surface between the two parts, the handle and the threaded bolt, which has resulted in the corners of the hex on the bolt to round-over. I'm not sure whether this is an engineering or manufacturing flaw, though I tend to think that it is a combination of both; the receiver on the handle is too shallow, and the metal of the hex bolt is too soft. I'm curious if this is a common problem with this tool and, if so, should I order enough replacement handles to have a supply on hand, or manufacture my own t-handles to replace the original equipment? Other than this handle problem, the lathe has served me well for the few months that I've owned it. Thanks for your assistance with this.

    This is a good lathe if you are starting out or do smaller turnings. It has some great features for the money. The mechanical variable speed comes in handy.
    A few overwhelming cons need to be addressed. Of course the lowest speed is 600 rpm. I knew that going in but it severely lowers the size of blank you can put on it and be safe. No handwheel but I can live with that. The tailstock design just sucks. The bottom can make it very difficult to get the banjo lined up the way I like.
    Still for the money it is a nice starter lathe, just recognize what it can and can't do. And watch those bigger blanks, it can make for a potential accident.

    Good starter lathe, but... 06/19/2017 11:53:18 AM

    The lathe works well enough, but after a while, some of the shortcomings show themselves. For example, the slowest turning speed is about 700 RPM. If all you are turning are relatively light, well-balanced pieces, you're fine. Otherwise, be very, very careful. Another example, there is no lock for the drive which can make hand sanding and other operations awkward. The lack of available accessories is an issue if you plan to do much bowl turning. The lathe comes with a decent enough rest, but if you plan to do much bowl turning, you'll find the rest limiting. If you plan to but a rest from another lathe, be careful. With the Grizzly's 25 mm tool rest post, no standard 1" rest will work.

    In my opinion, Grizzly has ALMOST got a great deal in this lathe. Adding another $100 to the cost for a much more user-friendly tool would be a GREAT deal. Plus, Grizzly, you might sell some add-on items you do not now offer.

    Have wanted a full sized lathe for some time for my high school wood working elective. For the price this lathe is great. Only complaint is the locking system for the tool rest carriage and the live center. The lock bars are short and thin, so its difficult to actually....lock them. Plenty of power and weight, minimal vibration.

    What a Lathe! 06/05/2017 8:34:18 PM

    Bought this beast back in 2010 at the Williamsport store. Set it up myself, built the shelf underneath, put 3-1/2 semi solid 8 inch blocks on it and never looked back. 1000 bowls ,platters and 100's of spindles later and some huge newel posts ( 42 long x 10x10 inches square) and I didn't have to fork out 4K for a Powermatic. I can buy 5 new ones for one Powermatic all though that won't be necessary. Can't say enough good things about this lathe and the money it has made for me and the serendipity that turning brings. Warning wood turning is highly addictive!

    The lathe was a good price compared to others with the same specifications.
    Have used it alot with no problems.
    The only problem was they have very few items i wanted in stock.

    Good first lathe 06/02/2017 11:43:59 AM

    I'm a professional furniture maker and this is my first lathe. I bought it to produce chair and table legs for a large order. It has done the trick for spindle turning, plenty of power for smaller diameter pieces and stable enough. I have my doubts about turning bowls or larger pieces on the lathe though. Maybe if I bolted it to the floor... but still it may not have the torque needed for a large bowl at low rpms.

    Good Lathe . Just didn't realize how much I would need a slower speed for natural edge bowls to start out with . Odd shape bowl blanks . I would've purchased the variable speed . It's a Great lathe ! I've learned a lot from from this , Woodturning , and what to purchase next time if there is one . A Learning purchase .

    this is a great machine 06/02/2017 1:13:24 AM

    the G0462 is a much better lathe than the one I had that broke. I have been building custom tables and turning the legs. A lot of vibration on my old machine virtually none on my new Grizzly. The only problem and maybe its just me, but gearing down from the higher speeds sounds a bit weird. I guess I'll get used to it.

    I have had my wood lathe for 3 or 4 months. So far I have made 4 pastille tables and am now working on bowls. I am very pleased with the lathe, it has been every thing that I hoped it would be. In the future I hope to buy a more expensive one from Grizzly. Grizzly did a wonderful job packing the lathe, it arrived in good shape.

    Perfect lathe for the price! 06/01/2017 9:55:20 PM

    I bought this lathe just to do some hobby work and you can't get a better or larger lathe for the price. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for getting into turning.

    Solid Machine, Great Value 05/25/2017 7:15:48 PM

    A very solid lathe, easy to use and no major inconveniences (so far). One would like a slower speed available. The banjo has to be courted a bit to learn how it positions and locks most easily. At 600 RPM there is some noticeable power loss. But all this can be accommodated. The machine quality is just fine and you'll want to take good care of it. I'm a left-handed turner and must have the head stock swivel feature for bowls. The swivel works fine and the banjo accommodates swivel turning. On my lathe, the head stock and tail stock centers were aligned vertically to within 0.005" on arrival. I'm more pleased than I thought I would be. Wonderful to have this tool in my shop.

    Real tools. 05/22/2017 1:14:34 AM

    After researching and considering all the current offerings for 110/120 v lathes the grizzly stood out as the sturdy work horse of the crop.
    This tool is solid! Setup was a simple even with no help. Each part is heavy but liftable even for my 61 year old back.
    I also own a Grizzly table saw and dust collector. I can't say how good or bad their customer service is because I've never needed it. These tools just work and the price can't be beat.
