    Good starter

    Posted by Vincent Turcotte on 10th Feb 2017

    I have this lathe as my first (personal) lathe. Plastic gears needs grease if you want them to last, handles miss positioned, colliding in some maneuvers. Change for the quick tool post right away! It should come stock with it. Crosslide isn't very accurate, tail-stock movement extremely loose.

    On the pros, this item is very safe for inexperienced, will stop and "default" light if something goes really wrong instead of throwing everything everywhere. Auto-feed is reliable, leadscrews backlash is minimal. There is no lock for the bed swing, but you can lock it on the feed screw, it'll do the trick.

    Individual jaw chuck tightening inefficient, making centering rod harder... should upgrade the chuck.

    Otherwise, easy to use, compact, light and useful.

    CX704 is Average

    Posted by Don Querido on 2nd Dec 2016

    I recently purchased a CX704 lathe.It is a nice product for the price but I have had some disappointments with it.Bad assembly, gears out of line, bad paintwork, design problem with handles for cross feed and carriage too close together so that when carriage is moved you also collide with feed handle thus messing up your setting,no oil holes for lead screw bearings,handle for toolpost broke off, its cast iron not steel,Gears are plastic not cast iron,assembly and quality are disappointing, accuracy is very average.
