I bought this used 6 years ago and it's been a great machine. I bought it originally to build rifles. But I have since used it for building parts for just about everything. I never thought just how useful this was around the house. If I owned a farm or worked on cars, boats etc. this would be my first choice.
If you want to learn how to do machine work this is a good start. I've learned a lot on it and when I open my gun shop I'm going to upgrade to the gunsmith combo machine.

Great product for the money 06/25/2019 6:41:24 PM

I bought this about a month ago and really like the machine. There are a few things that I didn't like and one was the excessive amount of paint on the pulley's that run the machine. Edges were really rough. Nothing a little sand paper didn't take care of. A lot of the threads are rough but I simply ran a tap and die on the items that were giving me trouble. I did find that one of the T slots was tight and I couldn't slide my compound table through it. Simply milled a little of one side and all fit fine. These are small items to deal with for the cost of the machine. If you want better precision then spend more money for a higher end unit. Like I said, great machine for the money.

Good entry level product 05/28/2019 11:54:04 AM

I have been looking at getting a lathe for a long time, and finally decided that an entry level new one would fit what I needed. So far it has excelled at everything that I have tried with it. I should have gotten it sooner, what a time saver!!

My G9729 has paid for itself 7 times over by making custom rifle sights and ski boat parts. Just realize when buying these types of machines that it is not a precision tool room lathe/mill but for typical tasks it works fine.

overall it does the job 07/16/2018 2:03:01 PM

After 5 years of hard use this lathe is tired but still runs true. 3 motors, 2 half nuts, an oil leaking head and a complete rewiring I can sit here with full confidence and say I would buy another at this price. The mill head does have a purpose however the distance between the quill and table requires a very tall vise so keep that in mind. Grizzly's customer service has been outstanding fully tackling any issues I had with this lathe which in return gives me confidence when upgrading my next lathe

Pretty good, small issues 03/15/2018 11:11:54 AM

I've had mine about a month and I've been happy with its performance so far, though I have had a couple issues. It really needs taken apart and thoroughly cleaned first and minor adjustments need made to tighten everything up for a good surface finish. The thing that bothers me most though is the nylon gears inside the lathe head. There are 2 plastic gears that run the lead screw, which wouldn't bother me so much if they were easily accessible, but they are not. I would assume they used the plastic gears as a sort of fail safe in case you run the carriage into the chuck, but they should have made them strong enough so that they don't get damaged just by stalling the lathe for a second. That's what happened to me, and they are a bit of a pain to change out. If they were going to use any plastic gears at least they should have used them on the end gears or something. Really what point is steel end gears with plastic gears leading to them? Anyhow, aside from that, I'm happoy with it. Plenty of capacity for larger projects and plenty of power for its size.

Just what I wanted. 01/26/2018 12:34:28 PM

I am a garage/basement hobbyist and I think you are too if you are reading this review. So far, the machine is perfect for my needs. My motivation for buying this was to make some part for a hot rod that I could not otherwise buy. The three jaw chuck spins at .003 right out of the box. I have not tried to fuss with it yet to get it better. I bought a 6" four jaw chuck, the backing plate blank that was included with the lathe made it very simple to mount. Everything works and the machine runs pretty smooth. I have not done much with the mill yet. My only issue with the milll is that the spindle is quite high above the carriage and vice. In order to mill a small part using an end mill in a collet you will need to come up with a solution to raise the work piece. I happen to have some 6" cast iron riser blocks and they work quire well. I was able to mill some straight lines in steel without a problem.

I do recommend following the break in procedure and doing the oil change. As a matter of fact, I will be doing another oil change soon. There was quite a bit of metal in the bottom of the bucket from the first change. The machine takes about a quart of oil.

The shipment was prompt and the lift gate delivery was a lift gate. However, you need a forklift or an engine hoist to move it around once you get it on the garage floor. The lathe comes fully assembled and covered in grease. I took the entire machine apart, mainly to facilitate moving it to the basement, and then cleaned it and reassembled. A few parts needed to be de-burred, but in general I was happy with the design and the construction. As you can see in the photos, I used the HF Yukon cabinet as a base. Works well if you take the wheels off. I tried it with the wheels and it was too tall and scary.

For the price and the size I highly recommend this machine. I really like the lathe distance over the bed, it will allow me to do many things that you could not do on other small machines. Of course, bigger is always better, unless you are the guy hauling it to the basement.

9729 lathe combo 01/02/2018 12:15:20 AM

Good product , need to advise customer that they will need to clean the lathe from when they made it ! Lathe was greased very well when I received it but the metal shavings from when it was made was in the grease ! Still happy ! Had bad delivery service keep putting me off to deliver it from Shreveport Louisiana, so me and my wife drove to Shreveport to pick it up on a Friday at 7:45 pm we live one hour and fifteen minutes from Shreveport and we paid for lift gate service but other than that Im still happy thank you!
