    Very, very nice lathe. 10/28/2017 3:22:14 PM

    This is a very nice heavy duty gearhead lathe in a relatively small footprint that comes standard with lots of high-end add-ons, such as steady and follow rests, two chucks, built-in manual carriage oiler, spindle brake, chuck guard, light, and many safety interlocks so take that into account when comparing features. It makes really accurate cuts too - lots of power and super rigid due to the combined stand and upper section castings. It is definitely in a different class than the two-piece stand mount style lathes and a heck of a lot heavier too so lifting/moving this lathe takes a whole different level of moving equipment. Wiring in the control panel was very neat, paint all around was super, and all components were super clean and accurately made. Also, be sure to pre-read the manual for how to lift it (important info in there) and also have extra oil ready for break-in cycle (it came fully filled with oil but the manual says to change the oil after initial spindle and gearbox break-in before placing into service).
