This one, however, is for those that cannot afford the expensive one or for those that just don't need a high price lathe. It shipped promptly, I received mine in less than a week. Out of the box there was some assembly required, but not too bad. Not as much as a lathe from Harbor Freight out of the store. The Harbor Freight one took approximately 2 hours to assemble, this one was assembled in less than an hour (and I was not in a hurry and taking a little time).
The base is actually two pieces that bolt together. That was a nice surprise since it will come in handy to be able to remove half of the base for a smaller footprint and the lathe still function properly. Then just install it when I need to work on a larger project (only 3 bolts, less than 5 minutes to take off/put on). Some of the parts on this lathe are cheap, such as the tail stock spindle handle. It is made from plastic, but then again, they cut corners to make it more affordable and I don't see a need for me to need anything more than a hard plastic handle. It seems durable and gets the job done. On mine, the Allen screw that holds the tool rest in place needs to be replaced since it is just a little walled out on the inside and cannot grip enough with an Allen wrench to tighten enough that it doesn't come loose during operation. A small screwdriver gets it done. But since that screw only holds the rest at a height level, I think I will just glue mine in place since I work from the same level on my projects.
It cannot be considered a free-standing bench top lathe though. It definitely needs to be mounted to a bench or table in some fashion. There are bolt holes for this purpose; I just used a couple clamps to clamp it to my bench that worked great. Without bolting or clamping it down, it will move during operation. Not securing it causes it to vibrate quite a bit. And it is not a quiet lathe by no means. I wouldn't call it excessively loud, but it is louder than most wood lathes (not to the extent of needing hearing protection, but loud enough to notice).
Changing the speeds on this lathe is a little different that I am used to. You have to open the access door to the belt pulleys (single bolt 9/16) I removed that and replaced it with a magnet for easier access that is working well. After opening the access door you must loosen 4 9/16 bolts on the motor and lift slightly up on the motor to move the belt to another pulley. There is a diagram on the inside of the access door to show which speed each pulley is designated for. Changing the speeds takes about 3-4 minutes total.
The unit is heavy and durable. It is solid metal where it needs to be (base, stocks, tool rest components) and sheet metal in other places (housing). The 1/2 hp motor is enough for this lathe too, never bogged down on me. Like I said, don't buy this expecting to get an expensive lathe. This is an economical lathe for those than need/want one. I felt the price was a great deal for a 40" lathe. I have no regrets what-so-ever in this purchase. And would purchase it again under the same circumstances.
