    CX801 lathe - liking it more after 1 year of use

    Posted by Paul M on 1st Jan 2021

    I have used my CX801 for a year now and like it more with a year’s expertise under my belt. I have turned pens, pepper-mills, bowls, small hollow forms, ornaments and even made a replacement sideplate for an antique wooden fishing reel. Of I could upgrade here are the aspects I would wish for: Tailstock locking lever that stays locked in place without coming loose while turning. More clearance for wider pieces. Longer bed for deep drilling long blanks like tall pepper mills. Head stock position lock. Electronic speed control. I have managed to do projects without these nice to have features but after using this for a year these are the things that I realize would be worth paying extra for.

    Cx801 wood lathe

    Posted by Pierre Voyer on 14th Nov 2018

    Purchase this about 1 year ago. Made bowls, candle stick holders, mallets, plates, tooth pick holder, wooden spatulas and spoons and more. Unit is very good only thing might be improved on was the lever ends are platic and break easy and changing speeds is a pain. For the beginner could not ask for better. Nice unit.

    Good Starter lather does almost everything

    Posted by Pierre Voyer on 4th Sep 2017

    Purchase this unit 8 months ago. Overall I found it very good for a beginner, I have done candle sticks holders, mugs, goblets, bowls salt and pepper shakers etc....The only issue is speed changing can be a pain. The unit itself is great..worth the money and the support is pretty good too. my 2 cents.

    Love this Unit

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Feb 2016

    I got this at the Ottawa store 5 months ago! I have turned over 40 pens, several small handles, and a few samll bowls. It works beautifully. The staff at the Ottawa store is just exceptional! I don't mind taking a minute or two to change speeds.. this manual feature keeps the price down!

    Solid unit - great service from BusyBee

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Oct 2014

    I picked up this unit as my first lathe in a small shop and have been happy with it so far (made a few pens to start with). I do wish it was easier to change speeds (or had proper instructions on how to). It did come with a defective live centre though but when I contacted BusyBee, they immediately shipped me out a new replacement one from stock without question or complaint. Very happy with things so far.

    middle quality

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Aug 2014

    got it 4 months ago. I was surprised to find out that in order to change the speed I have to open it and move a belt every time. This is time consuming and difficult to do. after few times of changing speed it did not work to fix the hight of the motor to get it working with the belt. I did it with changing a bolt which got bend and have now only one speed in the middle. I do not recommend this lathe for some body wants smooth and quick jobs.

    Nice little unit

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Sep 2013

    Have had this lathe for about 7 months now. Well made, well packaged and has done a nice job for me so far. Have put a decent amount of mileage on it turning a lot of pens and smaller blanks. Compared this to several other mini lathes all at the same price point but opted to buy from busy bee becuase of the three year warranti and the service. would recommend this, happy turning!
