          The item was definitely needed a thorough cleaning but I knew this when ordering. Minimal damage to the crate from shipping.

          Good starter metal lathe
          It came in a good, protective crate with no complaints. Set up was relatively easy, a good learning experience as to how everything works. Motor was quiet and powerful. As my first metal lathe I'm satisfied this will be very useful learning machining. Biggest complaint is the compound. Ruff machining, very time consuming to change the angle and keep it tight. Definitely needs a quick change tool post also. Still, I'm glad I made the purchase and can see lots of learning and projects in the future.

            For the price, not a very good machine. Once arrived has to do a lot of things to it, just to make it work so so. Not what expected from grizzly.

              Everything was loose. Gears rattling. Gear rail set too high had to drill new holes to set. Tool holder milling very bad. I really sigh Id have went with another option. This was not good.

                    I have to rate the lathe at average. I've had to put a lot of work in it to get a decent cut. I have a cheap harbor freight one that required less setup. I do have to say that Grizzly has been great, sending out parts to help get the issues resolved and is now a good lathe.

                    a little disappointed
                    i revived my new G0768 last week, so far, all i have been doing is trying to get the slop out of the slides, the saddle seems to be the worst, it can actually twist by about 5 thou.. also having to replace the compound slide rest due to a defect, Grizzly has been great about that part, they sent one out no questions, i should receive it this week, hoping that will help some of the slop on the cross slide. I think for what i paid for the unit, i was expecting a bit more quality control and better tolerances. over all, it runs well, but like i said, having to fine tune and mod it to stop the chatter.

                      Great service!
                      I was a little worried about getting the lathe delivered, I live on a dead end street. The lathe traveled by Saia until it reached Orlando. Saia handed it off to Lykes Cartage for final delivery. They really went above and beyond. The guy backed down my street, lift gated it down onto his pallet jack and dragged it up my driveway and across the grass to my shop doors! I can't thank them enough. Everything was in the box, (nice wooden crate, (my wife snagged it for gardening stuff!) I'm cleaning grease off now, I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
