Lovely piece of engineering, superb choice.
I invested in this lathe after much careful consideration and was eventually persuaded after seeing Mike Waldt's YouTube video reviewing his Stratos lathe. I could not be happier. It represents a very significant investment for me for what is essentially a hobby machine, but the quality shines through. It is robust, quiet. powerful and has some really nice touches. I like to turn quite large, out of balance pieces, retaining as many of the natural features of the wood as possible, and the weight combined with the excellent variable speed control allows me to do this. SImon is extremely helpful and replied to my queries promptly and courteously. I purchased one of his laser hollowing jigs at the same times, as well as a few new tools and other odds and ends, all of which have proved very satisfactory.
I bought this lathe about 2 years ago from Arizona Silhouette after watching an excellent YouTube video by Mike Wahl. I had planned to buy the Powermatic but the cost was almost $1000 more for one with similar features. I could not be more pleased with my choice! It has performed flawlessly. Has more than enough power although I have not turned anything larger than 18". Smooth as silk and runs all day without any complaints.
An excellent lathe!
I bought one of these lathes after having been over to Hope Woodturning to view their different lathes. I have now owned it for about 3 months and have turned a variety of different items from pens to out of balance bowls. I cannot find anything negative to say about it. Delivery was prompt and efficient and it came very well packaged from the manufacturer. Clear instructions were provided for assembly, although there was a great tip from HWT to suggest assembling with the lathe bed upside down and fitting the legs on rather than what the instructions suggested. One tiny niggle was that 2 of the bolt holes for attaching the vari-speed box were not in line. It is a VERY solid piece of kit, really robust. I have had some out of balance pieces on but the weight of the machine combined with the excellent speed control means that this can be managed very well. There are some really nice features on the machine such as the rack which holds tools/drive spurs etc and the 'walk about' magnetic speed control. Overall a fantastic bit of kit.
Excellent lathe, good value for the money
A very well thought out lathe, offers every thing you could possibly require from a lathe of this capacity. The extension bed adds an excellent benefit and if you are into giant bowls, the ability to bolt on the extension bed in any of 3 positions is another bonus. With the two speed easily changed drive belt system the motor provides plenty of power. The down side it is not provided with a 150mm tool rest. Other wise perfect.
