Grizzly G4000 9" x 19" Bench Lathe

The perfect combination of price and performance.

The Grizzly G4000 9" x 19" Bench Lathe is a great lathe for those getting started in metalworking. It has a number of features and capabilities typically only found on higher-end lathes and it's jam-packed with standard accessories. The compact size allows this lathe to be mounted to an existing workbench or on the optional Model G4001 stand. You won't find a better combination of price and performance on a full-featured 9" x 19" lathe anywhere!

Like all Grizzly lathes, the G4000 comes with a 1-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The G4000 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy to read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your lathe.

The Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the lathe are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

I bought the G4000 recently and am happy to learn new skills in machining. The lathe come with much of what you need, justt add measurement and cutting tools. Steven

A fun machine 06/06/2020 7:10:58 PM

I bought this four years ago and have been having a lot of fun with it. The G0602 10X22 is probably a lot more lathe for the money, but it weighs 80 lbs more and it is that much harder to raise and mount and move. The headstock on my lathe was not aligned with the ways when I got it, leading to a taper on turned or bored pieces. I didnt discover that misalignment until after the warranty expired, as I made mostly small pieces or assumed that errors were from my inexperience. However, with excellent and patient assistance from Grizzly Tech Support, I have now aligned the headstock precisely. I had a similar problem with my G0758Z mill with the column not perpendicular to the base, but Grizzly repaired that under warranty. It is worth checking the alignment of your new Grizzly tools when you get them, and not just assuming things have been properly set at the factory.
The supplied four-jaw chuck, while probably invaluable for machining large and oddly shaped parts, is not very useful for smaller pieces, as others have noted. One can buy a 4 four-jaw chuck at Little Machine Shop to fit the G4000. I also added a Quick Change Tool Post, carriage stop and carriage DRO with an inexpensive DRO strip from Amazon, all worthwhile upgrades.

Good basic lathe, great product tech support and service. 05/20/2020 11:27:48 AM

Received this lathe 3 weeks ago. Have turned, faced, and threaded steel with ease. It came with 2 defective ball oilers and an oil soaked belt which Grizzly quickly replaced. This lathe is a good step up from the cheaper lathes with plastic gears, this lathe seems quite solid but would be better if the compound cross slide was a little more beefier. This seems like a good basic lathe for the average guys garage.

My second. Great product 02/23/2020 3:42:00 PM

This is my second purchase of this lathe. It works well and is very reliable. The accuracy and repeatable are very good.

Great product 02/04/2020 4:59:51 PM

Exellent service, I had the cosmetic of a part which had been damaged during transport and in the same week they returned the replacement part to me and this did not affect the functioning of the Lathe. You can trust their service. good communication

I haven't used it a lot and I'm certainly no machinist but it seems like it's built well and accurate.

Great lathe 01/01/2020 7:19:41 PM

This is my first metal lathe, I took advantage of the 10% off and very glad I did.
I wanted to get into making rings, both metal and wood, and so far its going great. The only thing I wish it had was variable speed. It has the belt and pulley speed control, but its lacking in my opinion. The reason I went with this lathe is the metal gears. Worth the extra I think.
Going to convert the motor to a 3phase and use a VSD controller soon.

Perfect size and excellent experience 12/27/2019 2:59:33 PM

Lathe arrived Dec 2019. No damages and well crated. It is pretty heavy and needs at least two strong people to move. I used a forklift to move to the shop and jackstands and lift straps to position on the bench. Cleaned it up and bolted it down. I'm not a machinist, but it seemed well aligned. The setup instructions in the manual were excellent. Once I had some tooling and put some metal in it, it ran quiet and smooth. Everything seems to work as it should.

Customer service has been excellent. It was missing a few extra gears and Grizzly quickly sent the missing parts. I then discovered a defective ball oiler on an idler pulley and a defective 28 tooth gear (partially missing tooth with a pitted root). Grizzly responded immediately for this issue as well.

I expect if I had kept looking on craigslist, etc., I could have found a bigger, American made lathe cheaper. But then I would have to move it into my tiny shop. I'd then have less room in the shop to do things. I expect with my limited knowledge of the lathe world, it would be more difficult to find replacement parts, and I certainly couldn't call a US service center who answers the phone and sends me replacement parts within a few days. Overall, I'm very satisfied.

Great Lathe for the money 03/17/2019 12:41:23 PM

I have been looking at lathes for long time, almost went with a HF mini lathe but I am so glade I didn't. After a lot of research I chose the G4000. It came with a lot of accessories that I would need to buy. This lathe performs well and exceeds my needs. Grizzly service department is also top notch.

Great machine 03/14/2019 12:20:25 PM

Just got it set up, In the owners manual, under break in it says ti use a ISO 32 oil in the bearings, and a ISO 68 for the ways. I would think that Grizzly would carry for sale the ISO 32 oil. I did find it on Amazon in a Synthetic. I added a .626" spacer between the chip pan and the lathe, as I felt the carriage was to close to the chip pan.
So far a great machine.

Great little lathe 03/08/2019 4:11:20 PM

Got this unit about 3 weeks ago and have about 35hrs on it now. Arrived in great condition, well secured in its crate, fit and finish is good for the price. Some paint falls off the edges of the machineded surfaces every time I run it, the gear cover had to be slightly modified to properly fit and not rub on the gearing and about 1/2 of the the check balls on 1/2 the oils ports fell in on first oiling. Other then the few minor things its been a good unit so far, was set up from factory very well, only needed minor adjustments here and there. the unit is fairly quiet, no louder then a furnace fan or washing machine. I bought a 3/8 shank tool set with mine but after getting set up, a 12mm set would work with no shims as the centre line is just under 1/2 and the tool post will accept up to a 3/4 tool which would have been handy to know when ordering so I could have ordered a knurling tool and some Parting blades. The other thing this lathe does not like is a wider carbide insert parting tool (came in the set I ordered), unless you clamp the gibs down on the compound and feed extremely carefully things will end badly. Run the machine to its capabilities and I think it will last for years, definitely would recommend this machine

The four jaw chuck has limited use 03/06/2019 6:05:39 PM

Grizzly 4000 and Shop Fox m1049 are the same. They are supplied with a 7 1/4 inch four jaw chuck that has limited use. A great chuck if you can find something that it will hold, but lacks a full range of movement. The Lath is great, but if you need the use of a universal four jaw chuck this is not the lath you want. I was told at Grizzly that there is no optional four jaw chuck available.

It has been a nice machine so far. I am a new user so I am still learning all it will do.

Although I haven't had the time to set up my new G4000, It looks well made and arrived safely and in good condition. This machine will be replacing a mini lathe and I feel it will be ideal for my smaller work. I also own a Grizzly G4002 12" X 24" Gear Head which has been a real work horse. I've always liked working with Grizzly Tools although I was disappointed to learn that the PA showroom was closed as I was able to travel there from RI on occasion. .

I really like it 03/11/2016 7:47:49 PM

I bought mine 4 years ago and feel so pleased I bought it every time I start it up, I do preventive maintenance as to not have any trouble, like buy new belts before I really need them, and check all bolts regularly. THERE is only 1-ONE thing that I found that sadden me - it will not cut threads that match the spindle chuck mount m39x4, I had to get a tap and do my other back-plates. I remember I cut threads for 3/8 bolt the same day I got it setup, that was about 3 days after received it, I took measurements and made a welded table to mount it on so I would have no worry about tolerances, no flexing here and cuts as true as the day I first ran it.
