I bought mine from Harbor Freight as a ready to run machine. At least that was the plan, as I knew little about lathes at the time. Roll forward a couple of years and I feel I have one or two comments that may be of value. First off, any new lathe is essentially a kit of parts. Once you have scraped off the packing grease and given it a nice wipe down you have this unknown monster staring at you. Next you will need to set it up. Ignore the manual, the writers have no clue. Go to any search engine and look for advice on setting up a lathe - there is a lot out there and it's all valuable to one extent or another. While this is going on you will need to add cutting tools, hex keys (adjustments) and some goodies like starter kits and replacement screw sets from Little Machine Shop (add this site to your browser, you will go there frequently). Micromark sometimes beats them on price and shipping, so shop around.

Follow the advice in the various posts on setup slowly and deliberately, checking for results at each step - it sounds ponderous but it is fun and very enlightening. By now you will be filthy and oily but better acquainted with your tool, which itself is now set up to actually do something. Now you need to read up on how to machine something (assuming you are a novice - like me) so sit down and absorb all the wisdom and experience that is out there. Tea/coffee/beer time!

Then play around a little to see how it performs/behaves/could be better, based on your now informed perspective and experience of fettling it. By now you have got to know your lathe, it's vibrations and noises. That is what I meant by a kit of parts - ready to be set up to perform, but 'out of the box'? No way - but as I found out, no lathe should be be regarded as 'ready to run'.

I have had two Central Machinery 7" x 10" Mini-lathes. The first one I wore smooth out and finally ended up selling it as junk iron for $8.00. Although when I junked it, I had removed a non-working on/off switch and the speed control knob was inaccurate. Also, the auto-feed lever stayed loose and had to be held up with a rubber band when in use. I bought a second one and have had problems with it too. Mostly, it suddenly would only run on 1 speed(well one speed in high and one speed in low). I first tried getting a rheostat speed control and replaced it, but it did no good. No difference. I then ordered the entire control box and it did no good. I also tried using the control box and rheostat from my first machine before junking it, but it didn't work either. Now I have another $500.00 paper weight, unless I need to use it on one speed. Got them both from Harbor Freight by the way, and the manual that came with it is all but worthless, about 12 pages of undecipherable gibberish. Also, the thread gear change pattern on the side of the machine contradicts the one in the "manual." Tech Support is virtually non existent and the service people on the phone are in Bangladesh or some damn place and can't speak English well enough to have a good conversation with. Not really recommended! I am considering going through Grizzly Industrial. I think the machine is identical, however I believe getting parts and tech support will be 100% better. For one thing they have a very thorough 48 page pdf manual that I have already printed to help me with my Central Machinery version. Plus they have parts; such as a lathe dog and faceplate that CM doesn't even offer. Hope this helps. So if you are thinking of going to Harbor Freight to get one, I would save up more money and go somewhere else like Grizzly or Enco.

I have one of these HF 7x10's and its been very reliable. I jhave several Siegs re-branded and can attest that they are 95% identical. This weighs about 75lbs. Order on-line for easy delivery but be aware this is a crated product so do not accept if you see visible damage or are unwilling to assume the warranty repair if any. I recommend shopping in store if you have a HF local, and getting the extended warranty. However its not necessary as parts are readily available ( littlemachineshop.com will ship overnight) Shopping in-store allows you to better inspect & select the package and perhaps get the sale price, but you cant beat the convenience of home delivery. Its also a great place to buy a micrometer and digi-caliper if you dont have measuring instruments. The 3/8 flexible set isnt bad either, but use LMS, Shars.com or Harvey tool for better cutting tools.
Good price for a nice lathe built by a reliable and reputable OEM manufacturer Sieg Industrial - www.siegind.com

Picked up at the store. Unboxed and the eye shield was missing. Called to get part. Is a days trip to take back.Got a bad foreign conection. Was told part was not available. When I said it could not be used I was given tech phone#. They told me they could not order out of stock parts. When I said it could not be used I was told I could make one or call the store and see if someone had returned one they could pull the part from and I could get it next time I was out that way. That reminded me the store demo model was missing lots of parts. where I work made us stop buying parts when things went bad so now I am wondering if the company will be around long. And I got the extended warrenty lots of good it will do if they can't get parts or are out of business. I ask and that is not the only part they could not order.
I like it and want to keep it but this makes me think it would be best to take it back and order 1 from one of the other compaines.
