WOOD magazine review

Good power but a bit top-heavy

Review Summary

High points: Good power. Enclosed cabinet offers storage, and shelves accommodate added weight for stability. Comes standard with a chip guard and a disc/drum sanding attachment with table. Easy spindle speed adjustment. Low points: Gap-bed design doesn’t allow locating the tool-rest base close to the spindle. The tool-rest base and tailstock nuts vibrated loose, and required readjustment, though this will be changed on future models. A narrow stand magnifies the lathe’s top-heaviness.
Metal outriggers allow bolting the machine down, and should be used. More points: Can be wired for 110- or 220-volt service.
