Having just bought a Grizzly G4000 a month or so ago I don't have the distaste that the other reviewers have. At least not yet. First off, understand it is a Chinese/Taiwan copy and does not have the fit and polish of a 5K t0 10K dollar American made machine. For the money it is a lot of machine if you are a hands on type guy. It will have a lot of small things that need doing. It will be coated with something like cosmoline and need cleaning. You will have to adjust about everything that moves on it. Mine came with the wrong size belt, a small crack in the chip shield (no big deal)and 3 ball oilers that the ball was not to the top and a little rust. I can tell you that Grizzly customer service was very quick to help me on all 3 of these issues, I took care of the rust. I dealt with them by way of Email only and they were great. I have used it some now that it has been tweaked and tuned and I find it acceptable for my use. I have a mini-lathe I was using before this one and it is a toy compared to this machine. I will say that others find the lack of a tumbler (i.e., a way to reverse the feed without reversing the motor) a big drawback especially if you need to turn left hand threads but if you are handy with tools it is a simple matter to add a gear & shift plate to add this. Also, most owners make a four bolt clamping ring for the compound slide to strengthen this part and reduce chatter. As for long term durability, someone else will have to cover this subject for now. If you are on a budget this will probably do what you need otherwise you would have a 10 or 20 thousand South Bend and not be reading this. I hope this helps you make up your mind which way to go.

I purchased this lathe about 1 1/2 years ago. The motor went on it about 3 months ago (with very light use - like once per month). Grizzly has still not been able to give me the parts I need, and my experience with customer service has been pathetic. For example, they shipped a motor, but not the other parts that were needed. So I've had a $150 motor in my workshop for 2+ months, which is starting to rust by the way. And the parts I need are not supposed to be in by "the end of the month" - the same story as last month. So now I'm looking at basically throwing a $1000 purchase (including stand) in the trash. Unbelievable....

I've owned this lathe for about a year. It is an old design that sells under many labels. The gears are metal, and you change speeds via lever and moving a small belt. What I like about this lathe is that it has more capacity than all those 7 x ?? models and has some heft to it (>300 lbs)

I have also seen the Grizzly model G0602 10 x 22 lathe and it just runs rings around this one - larger capacity, change speeds and threading from the front panel, better tailstock are the differences I noted. If you can get by with a smaller lathe, the Hi Torque one from Little Machine Shop would probably be a better fit, for much the same reason.

My main gripe about this lathe is that the toolpost is not very stable. I get lots of chattering, even on plastic like nylon and UHMW.

Bought it and opened the crate to find...RUST RUST RUST everywhere. On the spidle, handles, and especially on the 'hardened' ways. On the ways? That's like buying a new shotgun and finding rust in chamber and inside the barrel.
First use, yupper, the tailstock broke...actually, some yung dung head at the Chicom factory DID NOT assemble it with a three cent keyway holder.
Finish is rough, at best...it's just an over-priced Harbor Freight 9x19 lathe. Under powered, over priced.
Now, to get my money back from Grizzley....

I've owned my Grizzly G4000 lathe for four years and it has been a reasonably good and reliable machine. It has needed no repairs and I often use it several times a week. I picked it up at the Muncey, PA warehouse with no problems such as rust, missing or broken parts. I replaced the original round two bolt tool post hold down with a square 4 bolt hold down that I made. The 4 bolt hold down was definately the way to go it's much more rigid. I also replaced the original handwheel handles with better ones like you would find on a higher quality machine. I've also adjusted the gibbs a number of times to keep the machine tight as normal wear occurs. The data sheet that came with machine that calls out the "as built tolerances" was a joke. The machine's construction is no where near the accuarcy that is stated on the spec. sheet. The biggest problem with my particular machine is that the head stock is not lined up with the bed very accurately and, to adjust it is major surgery. Short length work pieces are not a problem but accuracy on longer shafts can be another story. All things considered I think it's a pretty good (but not great) machine for the money.
