Well built and heavy lathe extension. Lathe can now do table legs, etc. Machining looks nice. The only downside is that the lathe stand I have does not extend far enough to handle the lathe and extension. I built a wood top for the stand that extended far enough to handle the extension.

I rated it as fair only due to the service. There unit itself is great, it extended my lathe for a fraction of the price I would pay for that size larger front any other manufacturer. I have numerous Wen products and they perform very well.Getting the unit through home Depot was a complete debacle

The lathe extension bolts (screws) nicely to the main lathe bed. However, the live center does not slide easily across the joint between the two sections. The securing bolts need to be completely loosened and the lathe extension jiggled for the live center to cross. Then I have to re-tighten the bolts to keep the extension attached. This also must be accomplished to reposition the live center back.I would think that all parts would fit perfectly together. Due to the location of the bolts (directly beneath the lathe bed), loosening them every time a different size project is begun is beginning to become bothersome.

Returned. The lathe extension did not align properly with the lathe. The lathe extension bed aligned with the lathe bed on the surface but the underside of the tail stock assembly hit the casting somewhere below the track and would not slide onto the extension. It is apparent the casting and machining need to be altered back to spec. Also, the socket head bolts provided with the extension for attachment to the lathe are too short by 1 cm. The original spec is no longer correct and the purchaser would need to obtain replacements.
