Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.
