If you're in the market for a benchtop lathe that doesn't skimp on rigidity and is priced under $1000, then you'll love our G0765!

It features a special "Big Boy" tailstock which was designed with the same convenient quick-locking controls and extra-long footprint previously only found on our much larger lathes.

It also features a variable-speed spindle with digital RPM display for dialing in the perfect cutting speed, a two-speed gearbox for the extra torque needed when turning at lower speeds, and the ability to cut a wide range of inch and metric threads.

This lathe includes everything you'll need to get up and running, including a 3-jaw chuck with internal and external jaws, 5" faceplate, steady rest, 4-way turret tool post and MT#2 and MT#3 dead centers.

Like all Grizzly lathes, the G0765 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 G0765 manual was written by our U.S. based Documentation Department is packed with useful information.

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

Overall good product 10/16/2020 2:39:01 AM

I got this in new condition from someone who had to sell it but had never unboxed it. Its got a few value added features that make it stand out above the various other Chinese mini lathes sold by many companies. The 14 bed length, spindle speed display, tool less quick adjust tailstock, and extra tooling like faceplate, steady rest etc.. Its well documented on YouTube videos that any of these Cheap Chinese mini lathes (quote - unquote) should be purchased under the belief that theyre a kit, and not really ready to perform precision work straight out of the box, and the G0765 is no exception. After several nights of adjusting and tweaking, I followed the spindle break in procedure prior to use. The results were pleasing, and Ive done many projects since then that backup that opinion! The plastic spindle gears get a lot of publicity from prospective and current mini lathe owners, and one night recently while using a parting tool on a piece of 3/4 aluminum, and doing it slowly I might add, the plastic gears decided to follow Willie Nelsons advice and go out in a blaze of glory! I replaced them with a set of metal gears from The Little Machine Shop, which is also where I obtained an OXA quick change toolpost, and many other accessories for the mini lathe. The qctp takes care of the tool height problems inherent with the 4 position turret toolpost, but if you dont want to spring for a $160 qctp, just get 5/16 hss tooling and shim it with strips of soda can aluminum which is easily cut with common scissors. Other issues like the problematic compound angle adjustment (you have to nearly back the compound clear off the mount to access the bolts that hold the mount at whatever angle you desire) are common to ALL Chinese mini lathes, so its not like the G0765 is the only one like that! I think this machine is a great value among mini lathes! Just remember that folks who buy these things most likely arent making parts for a D9 bulldozer, or NASA! In my opinion, one of the biggest benefits to buying ANY Grizzly mini lathe, or any power equipment, is that they stock EVERY part on their machines! If you buy one of Harbor Freights mini lathes, try getting parts from them!

Nice, fun little machine, be informed 10/15/2020 2:20:29 AM

Recently added this unit to my home shop.
First off let me list what Grizzly machines I do have: G5771 Slip Roller, G0755 Mill/Drill, G0752Z Metal Lathe, G0793 Drill Press, G0596 Bench Grinder, G0733 Wood Lathe G0845P Shear and now the G0765 Metal Lathe and feel good about having them all.
This is a couple items I think should be known of this G0765 7 x 14 lathe.
The spindle bore is 20mm allowing a 3/4" bar stock to pass through (yes, I jumped for joy and snatch it right up) but, the supplied 3" chuck bore is only 16mm which reduces the capability to 5/8" diameter bar stock (I felt a little more than stunned). Until now, I had not encountered a lathe that down-sized from spindle bore to chuck bore. Be aware the differences, don't assume as I that, the advertised spindle bore and non-advertised chuck bore match. If this maters to you as it does to me, be sure to check both before purchasing. With my tooling, I can fix this by boring out the chuck through hole or replacing it as Grizzly commented to me to do on my dollar.
Next, The tool turret, I thoroughly enjoy a four sided turret but, this one is manufactured incorrectly. It only allows four (4) stops where as others I have used allow 8 (8) stops. In addition, the 5/16" tools do not locate properly for the hold-down bolts to contact on center of the tool when backed up against the center for squareness. The 5/16" tooling will need to be spaced approximately 3/16" away from the center column of the turret.
I have needed to shim custom tooling up years ago in the turret but never away from center. The turret middle column is just too narrow. It might work on a larger machine requiring 1/2" tooling but not good on machines that recommend/require 5/16" tooling as this machine requires. Again, I can fix this bad design, I have the equipment to do so; you may not.
Next, as one other reviewer commented, it is noisy, I did not expect this with non-metal gears. Spending much time with this little fella, you should utilize hearing protection; the noise will get to you after a fashion. Don't know yet if it is the way the gear-teeth are cut or not. I will try grease, different lube types or something to reduce the noise.
My 16 x 60 lathe don't make as much noise.
This little fella really fine smooth cuts, not sure about threading yet. That seems to need adjusted too, currently, it is too loose for me to trust.
I would have went with six (6) stars if attention to design and detail had been done. Inspectors in the Chinese ISO factory need to wake up. Being in a factory environment myself, ISO factories in the states would not allow these types of inconsistencies.

I'm back, I've manufactured a new tool-turret, I get nearly glass-smooth finishes now, remarkable little lathe. I've also gotten the noise level reduces slightly (grease and lube helped). Liking this little fella more each time I play with it (use it). Don't miss-understand my review, I like Grizzly machines. Most of my shop is green and white and plan to add more Grizzly machinery. I'm eyeing the G0745 4" x 6" Micro Metal Lathe, and also the G0768Z 8" x 16" Variable Speed Lathe w/DRO; this 8x16 should be a sweetheart. But first, I'm making room for the G0727 5" x 18" 1/2-hp Mini Horizontal/Vertical Mill. I plan to dedicate it to Horizontal configuration. I just wish it had DRO on it as well, and power-feed for really slow-feeding.

Back for a final word: As stated, nice little lathe but, would not buy another. I've been spoiled with bigger machines. Save longer get a bigger unit. I've commented verbally to others (no different than buying a car, only lots cheaper).

Great little lathe. I purchased it because I was able to review the manual on the website first. It's very thorough, and in English. If you follow the manual regarding initial cleanup and adjustment, it should be fine. After a few runs, the gibs needed re-adjustment. I've turned many parts so far and I'm easily holding +/- .001. It's definitely just for small parts. I added a quick change tool post. It shipped well, and arrived undamaged. One bolt was rolling around in the box, but I was able to locate it's source (thanks to the manual) and all is well.

I'm 71 and have never owned or operated a lathe in my life until now. So I have absolutely nothing with which to compare this lathe. However, I can say I'm totally pleased with how it performs as I use it to learn the basic functions such as turning facing and drilling etc. And it is faithfully performing every task with the only limitation being my ability to operate it. I can say this is an EXCELLENT first lathe. It's extremely user friendly and easy to handle even for a novice, and is an excellent learning platform for any beginning machinist.

7 x 14 is a perfect size. It's small and doesn't take up much space, and yet is big enough to work without being cramped. I really like that it is not a toy, but is a full function lathe with all of the "adult" features of larger machines. There are lots of really excellent youtube video tutorials made by highly experienced machinists, so I watch and then practice their methods.

I'm an amateur hobby inventor and made my first prototype myself instead of having to go to a machinist to have it made for me. I can't fully describe to you what a personally satisfying experience it is to actually MAKE something yourself... and there is no way you could ever put a price on that.

Life is learning by doing... and this able little machine is MORE than capable of fulfilling that that purpose.

The service I received from Grizzly is outstanding. The first lathe was dropped off of a forklift by the shipper. They promptly arranged for it to be picked up and returned and in no time I had an undamaged lathe up and running.

Very nice little lathe. 12/13/2019 5:33:05 AM

I've owned this lathe for about 3 years now. I haven't had much time to use it much but I'll have to say it is well made for the price. I'm a retired machinist with 35 years in the trade with 20 of those years working for a machine tool manufacture out of Ohio and also owned and operated my own job shop. I've operated some massive lathes and mills in my time and I'm really impressed with the G0765 mini lathe. The only thing I use it for is to pass the time of day since I am disabled but hey, I just love machining. Great job Grizzly on producing a affordable, well made lathe.

powerfull little unit 02/15/2019 12:36:31 AM

Been in use since arrival, no problems mechanicly , did have a stripped out handle on the power feed but i welded it solid so alls good there ..... Runs nice and quiet and smooth........Was a little apprehensive about them nylon gears but suprisingly they are tougher then they look.......... They should last for years actually........... The 0nly way they would break is if u jammed a tool in the cut to fast, so with normal use no one should break any gears at all........... One thing that seems odd thou is 5/16 tooling......As 5/16" dont align with dead center dead on straight.......7/16 " does at least on the one i recieved...... im useing 7/16" cobalt tooling that i borrowed from my big lathe.......Note : This lathe doesnt arrive with any tooling ....... So when you order lathe be sure to order tooling.....

With a couple of exceptions, this is an excellent tool.

Plastic gears in the headstock is not a highlight. I had to replace them within the first month. There are metal gears available on LittleMachineShop.com. The compound slide needed to be polished and regulated immediately as it was very sloppy. For $60, the upgraded gears should be done immediately or buy a more expensive lathe.

Great product for the money 04/23/2018 1:12:50 PM

I bought this machine about a month ago and it works great for all kinds of projects. This size is a little bigger than the harbor freight 7x10 metal lathe and the tail stock on this lathe is perfect and easy to adjust. Only con to this machine is you can't push it to hard. The gears inside the head stock are plastic and will break if to much torque is applied to the gears. Other than that it's a great machine to have in your shop. Is not to big or heavy to move and it has accessories that the other lathes don't have. I would recommend this lathe to anyone who is wanting to learn the machinist trade

Haven't fully unpacked & cleaned up the lathe yet or got all the extra tooling I needed ordered. (really cold weather)

Looks like it will do everything I need in the near future.

Grizzly needs to reinforce the shipping crates though, as the first lathe sent was damaged & was returned. The second lathe sent crate was damaged but the lathe was fine.

Outstanding little lathe 12/21/2017 4:19:03 PM

I waited a while to write a review so I had a few jobs on the machine . I have owned this lathe now for about three years and have turned out many projects most of them being steel parts. After setting the machine up with dial indicators and test cuts it's tolerances are good. Realize that this a little 100 lb machine and treat it as such you can keep tight tolerances with this thing. I always check each time I go to use it and I mic everything in between the cuts on the final passes. Tail stock alignment is critical but is made easy with this "Big Boy" tail stock. Like any small bench top lathe you have to keep up with adjustments on the crossslide and ways. I would recommend this lathe !

This appears to be very well designed and built with adequate quality in mind. The instruction manual leaves a bit to be desired but there are lots of Internet folks to assist. "Tuning" the lathe is quite important as it appears that it is put together with that in mind. Tuning is an excellent exercise to become familiar with how everything works. We are quite pleased.

Nice little Lathe 08/08/2017 7:54:49 PM

As with any of these little Chinese lathes it will require some tweaking and adjusting, they take a lot of bouncing during shipping and the belt tension is especially important to check before you turn it on for the first time. Once I checked everything over on mine I cleaned and adjusted it all, followed the break in procedure and it runs like a top, very nice starter machine, or even a add on to go with a larger lathe for doing little stuff.

I bought this lathe and a mini mill from Grizzly 6 months ago and have not regretted it.
I need to make a distinction clear: buying something, anything, from Grizzly and the quality of that something are separate issues.
My buying experience with Grizzly was very good. I have complete faith and trust in Grizzly with regards to them standing by their products and working hard to satisfy their customers. I will continue to do business with Grizzly and strongly recommend you give them a try. I say this because there was an issue with shipping in which several parts were lost - Grizzly shipped new parts and did so without question, very quickly, and at no charge.

Now as to the G0765 7" X 14" Lathe. For the money this is a very good buy. However, it is a long way from perfect. I believe the following are the three most significant faults with the design.
First, there is no good way to lock the X, Y, or Z (longitudinal, cross ways, and diagonal or compound) axes. Modifications to accomplish this are possible.
Second, the manner in which the Y and Z axes leadscrews are attached is a very poor design. This makes it very difficult to achieve smooth movement along these two axes. I have completely given up on the Z and simply locked it in place at zero degrees using the gib grub screws.
Third, the Z angle cannot be changed without loosing the cutting depth, and adjusting the Z angle requires backing the tool holder out to very nearly the removal point.

Build quality is another issue. In most areas it is rather good while in others quite poor. On my lathe there are a few factory mistakes that should have been caught and corrected. The most common is crooked drilled and tapped mounting holes.

I would only recommend the G0765 Lathe with the admonition that it be thought of as a kit and a work in progress rather than as a ready to use lathe.

Perfect for my needs 06/02/2017 2:40:51 PM

I have wanted a lathe for a long time to improve my gunsmithing skills, and this was the right product. I would have liked to have seen some better detail in the manual about what size tools to purchase because I purchased a lot of tools that would not fit. I purchased a 5-inch, 4-jaw independent chuck so I could work on rifle barrels, which worked very well as you can see from the photo. Good product, good price. Overall I am pleased.

Great littel lathe. 06/01/2017 10:50:28 PM

the only thing that I see to improve. Would be to explane the metric threading in full in the manual. When I got the lathe my first job was metric thread cutting. Yes I was a new be on threading. After calling Grizzle the techs fixed me right up and told me how to do metric threading on this machine. thank you Grizzly. I will order more tools and machines.

Very nice lathe 06/01/2017 10:39:12 PM

I looked a many mini lathes before deciding which one to get. I picked the Grizzly G0765 for various reasons. 1 the customer service the reviews raved about how they communicate and service what they sell and they were right. Reason 2 is the quality of the product. I am aware that most all mini lathes are made in China but it appears Grizzly adds better quality to there product. The one item that concerns me is the plastic spindle gears and no metal gears sets listed. apparently there is a reason for this set up but no mention why.
I have had the G0765 for 5 months and have enjoyed enjoyed use it with exception of the spindle gear noise but customer service has in route replacement parts.
I am looking at there mini mill it has many great features if only the freight wasn't so expensive

G0765 ok to start, upgrade to a G0752 if you can. 06/01/2017 7:34:14 PM

Overall a mediocre lathe in this price range. Motor drive gear stripped within a month. Saddle is hard to maintain adjustment. The cross slide dial mount screws were drilled at an angle and protruding through the underside. Knowing what I know now I would've saved my money and went with a used Southbend or the G0752.

This excellent lathe is exactly what I needed for my small start up operation. Although someday I may wish to upgrade to something larger, it has proven invaluable for set up operations I have needed to perform. I especially like the variable speed and DRO features. If I could make one improvement I would include more stops on the 4 way tool holder rotation. Sometimes the 4 cardinal points are just not enough. I'm quite sure it will provide me with years of reliable service.

This is a great little lathe for the hobbyist, home shop and small parts prototype, builder. If you have a small shop this is the one for you. I really like the lever clamp locking tailstock. Also the RPM readout is a very handy feature to have. Wide range of thread cutting.

Nice, mostly 01/30/2016 4:42:26 PM

I have been using mini lathes for several years now and this is my third one. (I now have four and I use them all.) Comparing it to other lathes of comparable size, it is quite nice. Grizzly adds some nice touches like including a steady rest and the built in speed display. The thing I do not like is the tailstock. When I first saw this lathe listed, I really liked the look of the tailstock, and the product description even says, "First and foremost, it features a special "Big Boy" tailstock, designed with the same convenient quick-locking controls and extra-long footprint previously only found on our much larger lathes." It is nice with the locking lever, but that is all. You crank the quill back all the way to eject whatever you have inserted in the tailstock, but this one does not crank back far enough to eject many of the MT2 accessories that I have, including the dead center that came with this lathe. I had to disassemble the tailstock several times, to get dead centers and chucks out of the tailstock. Finally I put the tailstock leadscrew on one of my other lathes, drilled & tapped a hole in the end and inserted a screw in it to lengthen it enough to properly eject. This is a good lathe altogether, but the tailstock needs some work.

Perfect sized machine for my small shop!! 01/03/2016 12:19:46 AM

I purchased this machine about a month ago and it has already served me well. I am quite impressed with it. Perfect for fabricating small parts. I recommend this machine for the novice home machinist.
