      Answer This Question

      A:  Of course not. A Made in USA lathe of this size would cost nearly six figures. The better stuff is made in Taiwan, the inexpensive stuff is made in China.

        Pinched my Finger
        pinched my finger on this lathe. It didn't bleed but it hurt a little bit. The lathe wasn't on, but I guess it can still be dangerous even when off. Other than my finger, my experience with this Lathe has been fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a top quality product. Although if you have sensitive fingers or slow reflexes I would warn that I pinched my finger on this.
