My only complaint regarding the lathe is the lack of quality control, consequently the loss of one star. Three of the mounting holes are threaded for the supplied bolts, however the fourth hole is, for all purposes, non-existent. It's either filled with something or was never drilled and tapped to begin with. It should never have left wherever it was made like this, it's mounted with three only bolts to the stand. I own a few of (expensive) Jet tools, and this is the first one that I've bought that was less than excellent quality.
My biggest concern was the handling of the lathe during shipment, as the pictures show. The box was dropped numerous times (about 140 lbs) and the banjo and tail stock both came loose, thankfully the only damage was to some paint being scraped off. Pieces fell out of the box when delivered, and one was found in the street after the UPS truck left. Both straps were gone, and only the indentation where they were indicated that they were there at one time.
I will say that you do need a lot of accessories to go along with the lathe. Yes this machine will turn the wood- but you need to tools to chisel the wood and different attachments for different projects. I guess I did not realize this. We ended up spending hundreds of dollars more on accessories- but you're going to do that no matter which one you buy.
For the money this one rocks!
The digital variable speed control is amazing and makes working with the lathe incredibly easy. There is no guess work on the speed as the read out tells you exactly what it is.
- solidly built, hefty cast iron
- spur and live center line up dead on
- easy to move drive belt to change rotational speed ranges
- it is SO QUIET when in operation
- tail stock and tool rest base move easily, lock in place easily, and stay put, no slipping
- EXCELLENT user's manual; I know most of us don't like reading the manual, but this one is packed full of good information, and even has a few bits of subtle dry wit
- too heavy for me to move alone, which is also a pro, but if nobody else is home, I can't shift this
- costly, though in the long term, we are hoping this is the only lathe we'll ever buy, so there is that
