I had little room left in my basement shop, and was wanting a lathe to play around with. I had no room for a full standing one, and given I had no experience with a lathe, I didn't want to sink lots of money into one.

I wanted to try it out, and see what it was all about. For the cheap price that this one is, and given I had a spare variable speed drill lying around the house, it was great.

I works just fine for my 'piddling around' uses. You do really have to crank down hard on the tightening adjustments to keep it from moving.

My only complaint, is that I wish it was longer so that I could do longer pieces.

Overall, for the price, an excellent thing to own.

I mounted mine to a spare cherry board that I had, and place it on my jointer bed when I wish to use it, and hang it in an I-beam in my basement when I am done.

Overall, the lathe (really a lathe-like jig) is well designed and built, and is far better and cheaper than anything I could have hacked together. I had it set up in about 5 minutes. Unfortunately, the threaded shaft on mine that goes into the drill chuck and then screws into any number of other accessories has severely eccentric threads meaning the entire piece (or sanding disc) wobbles excessively. I called Grizzly tech support and gave them the part number of the defective screw and they said for inexpensive tools like this ( < $100) they cannot send out individual replacement parts from stock--the entire thing must go back. Thinking this was wasteful, I went to home depot to buy a M12 bolt, cutting the head off and chucking the smooth part of the bolt, but found the spur center was also out of round causing serious wobble. So I'm going to send the whole thing back to hopefully get a better one.

That aside, I tried turning a small 6" 2x2 piece of pine and found that once everything was locked down well, worked well for the most part. Various parts kept coming loose until tightened seemingly excessively (wear eye protection!). Even after cutting down below the radius of the piece, it never got perfectly round due to the wobble and I could always feel this in the chisel.

That said, if and when the defective part(s) are replaced, I think the system will be totally adequate for turning handles and other small wooden parts which is what I wanted it for in the first place. I think if you're clever, you could even mount the tailstock on another board and increase the maximum length beyond 2'.

Obviously, your experience will depend a lot on the drill you have.

I bought this with pretty low expectations given the price, but after using it a few times, I think this is a good basic hobby lathe, particularly if you are short on space and don't need a high precision tool. The tool rest is easy to move around, if a bit shaky at times, and the whole thing is easy to set up and operate. I just attached a cheap Skil drill I had, put in a blank, and started turning. I would not get this as a substitute for a pen lathe, but if you want something basic to turn small blanks to make fishing lures, reel seats, fishing rod handle components, or basic knobs or pulls, this seems to do the job.

At age 74, I finally broke down and purchased my first lathe, the Grizzly H2669 Hobby Lathe.
This lathe is not fancy, but is functional and priced for those strapped for a generous amount of cash - like me.
My first project was to shape a nosecone for a small model aircraft. Turned out great!

This is a very nice tool for the price. No heavy work can be done effectively, but it works great on light work! I recommend this product.

Used a Dewalt DWD210G drill with it. First project was turning some bocote to make grips for an antique bicycle. For the price, this thing can't be beat. Only thing I wish it could do (though, I realize wouldn't happen at this price point) is having one or both carriages riding on a lead screw instead of just sliding on the aluminum channel. Would have made boring the centers on these grips far less aggravating (thankfully, polyurethane Gorilla Glue is also a great product!).

I bought this for husband because I saw it featured on "Cool Tools". I thought it would be a good beginners lathe for doing small turning projects. He was not impressed with the performance of this tool and returned it. I guess you get what you pay for.

It is perfect for the type of work I do. I had to make a little jig for it, for some of the really fine cutting, but in all ,it is just what I needed.
