By Brian T. Rickman on December 21, 2012
The Good:
The best feature of this lathe is that it is very light weight. When I'm done turning, I unclamp the lathe from my workbench and put it on a shelf in the closet. It takes up very little space, which is important to me since I live in a mobile home.

The variable speed control is also nice. It's easy to dial in whatever speed you want for the type of wood and tools you are using.

The motor and tailstock bearings are very quiet.

The Bad:
Some compromises were made to allow the lathe to be so very light.

If you don't permanently mount this lathe on your workbench, then you must bolt it to a board which is clamped to a table or workbench when in use.

The tool rest is very small. Even when turning a pen, you'll need to move the tool rest multiple times before you finish the project.

Putting moderate pressure on the tailstock end of an 8" spindle while turning will cause the tailstock to move. You must use a very light touch on the tailstock end of your project to keep everything centered. This makes larger projects, such as tool handles, quite challenging.

Summary:
If portability is critical for you, this is probably the most portable lathe on the market. If portability is not critical for you, I'd suggest going with a more heavy-duty model.

This is a Great micro lathe. We were immediately impressed with how quiet and fast the lathe is. It works beautifully. My son has been using it to turn miniature dollhouse vases, bowls, plates, cups, etc. He is able to use it inside without any loud noise. We are using this lathe with the jaw chuck that fits it. Proxxon 27026 Three Jaw Chuck for the Lathe DB 250 The two together work great and makes it easy to turn anything. We have several Proxxon products and we are totally blown away by the power, and ease of use that all their products have. We have never been disappointed by their quality. Thank you for selling such great products and standing behind your name.

I really like this lathe. It has good blanche and little vibration. The tool bed is solid. The live center is easily adjusted and holds well. The tool support is handy and easy to set up. The speed control is great for adjusting between hard and soft woods and thick and thin workpieces. Overall a nice little lathe.

During the holidays I was looking for miniature wooden ornaments, and I kept thinking if I had a lathe I could make my own. I considered a lot of different models, but I passed over this one because frankly I had never heard of this brand. I'm glad I came back to it though, because it is perfect for small objects. It's also compact, packaged in a box measuring about 20x6x4 inches, which is great for me because I really don't want to leave it in the garage all summer. The lathe is well made (in Belgium!) and runs smoothly, but there's still some room for improvement. I knew absolutely nothing about woodturning, and the entire operating instructions take up just two columns in the booklet. The wording can also be confusing, such as when it refers to the same part as a "check key" in one place and a "centring (sic) key" in another. It also refers to a "knurled screw" on the tool rest, when it actually just has a plastic knob. Speaking of the tool rest, that knob can get in the way of your chisel, and as someone else said, it's only 2 3/8" in length, which means you have to stop and slide it over sometimes. The fact that this lathe comes from Europe may explain why the collet chucks are oddly sized: 5/64, 7/64, 5/32, 15/64, 5/16, and 13/32. Those are close to U.S. dowel sizes, but if you want to turn a 3/16 or 1/4 inch dowel, the chucks won't hold them. A "drive spike" is included for dowels that are too large for the chucks, but you have to use the 13/32" collet to hold it in the drive spindle, which isn't mentioned anywhere in the instructions. I have put the lathe away for now and placed an order for the Proxxon three jaw chuck, which is supposed to work with dowels anywhere from 1/16 to around 1 inch thick, but that's more money that I wasn't planning to spend.Read more ›

Really good quality for the price and expected use case. I use it for holding custom mandrels for a specialized polishing application. The tailstock is indispensable for this. I do wish that all the adjustments were a little easier to make (the thumbscrews can be hard on the fingers) but all-in-all I'm very happy. I did try turning a small wood dowel just for the fun of it and it worked well - though perfect centering is a challenge (a center-finder is included) and I'd highly suggest considering the 3-jaw chuck if this will be your primary use. As others have said, the tool rest is tiny. This means you have to move it a lot for anything long, but also means you can do very short items easier. I imagine that a longer one could be fabricated without too much trouble.

Great lathe for what it is intended for which is model building of doll house furniture and model wood ships. I build model wood ships from scratch. I use this lathe to construct the masts for my ships. It is fabulous for this purpose.
