Having researched mini lathes available in Canada I couldn't find a better combination of capacity, power and features at this price. One thing that made me hesitate was the fact that the lowest speed was listed as 650 rpm, which is a bit fast for larger, unbalanced pieces. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the current model is rated at 350 rpm. The listed specs are not up to date. Needless to say, I am very pleased with this lathe.
Great small lathe. Very nice machine to use,
