12 in. x 16 1/2 in. Comet II Variable Speed Wood Lathe is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of bang for the buck This is my first wood lathe so my experience is limited, however after much research I feel I made the right choice going with a variable speed lathe. This lathe has a lot of options for its price point. I did watch a review online that warned of poor handleing during shipping and experienced this first hand as mine showed up with a cracked bed. HD sent it back to Teknatool no questions asked but it was frustrating having to wait another two weeks for the replacement one. As far as tool performance and operation I give this item five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lathe They realy knew what they were doin with this lathe. everything is perfectly placed, smooth, and very well thought out. typically with any piece of machinery after working with it for even just a few hours you start thinking "man, i wish it had ______, that would really make this nice" but after over 30 hours on this thing ive still not found this to be the case. absolute perfection on the lathe.
