I bought this lathe/mill a few years ago and have made a lot of stuff with it. I really like this machine. the only problem that I have ever had is when cutting threads you have to go slow. if the belts slip it wrecks the job. gears driven is better for this. it will work just take shallow cuts

I have owned this lathe/mill combo for 10 years. I have added a 4 jaw chuck and very happy how precise the lathe is.
This machine is built like a tank and will last a very long time. Noite there is some initial adjustments to tune in the lathe but once done, it is very precise.

I bought this machine a few years ago and I think that it's a very good value for the money spent. I'm currently attempting to convert this lathe/mill to a CNC machine with the free software.

I purchased this machine about 2 years back in clearance sale. The best deal and best machine. I modified the line feed wheel to a larger diameter one which made a significant change in the ease of operation. I love this machine - finished many projects. Thanks to the staff at Concord store for helping with the accessories.
