Best purchase ever

by -

I bought one of these a couple of months ago and everything about it has been awesome. It shipped the same week I ordered it and the customer service was great. The lathe arrived in a timely manner and runs very straight. It is definitely the best purchase I've made for my shop. I now do all my prep and most of my shaping on it. It saves me so much time and physical effort. I truly love this machine.
