Extremely Satisfied

Comments On May 24, 2019:Delivered to my shop in mint condition and set up in about an hour. Headstock-tailstock alignment is SPOT ON! Folks at Craft Supplies kept me informed about delivery as it was on back order. Slow speed, reverse and indexing are the features my grizzly just couldn't provide. Last lathe I will ever own.
