Very pleased but

Very pleased with the machine, nice study build. All metalwork feels solid and well made. Service and advice from Simon was honest and helpful. Only slight niggle is the paintwork, the magnetic lock pin has chipped what seems very thin paintwork. Other than that great machine would recommend.

Wonderful lathe, wonderful service.

I ordered this lathe having done months of research, it’s my first lathe and I didn’t want to spend more money in a few years on a bigger machine.
First thing great customer service from Simon, I ordered on a Friday afternoon and it arrived Tuesday am. The packaging was extremely good and the product was very well protected and it took me a few hours to set it up. The double tapered tool made aligning the headstock spindle and tail stock spindle super easy and I was ready to go.
I’m really pleased that I decided on this machine it’s extremely heavy(I have the legs) the bed is ultra smooth and the banjo and stock just glide very smoothly and locks easily and firmly in place.
I whole heartily recommend this lathe and give the lathe and customer service five out of five.

Great well built machine

I purchased this lathe after doing a fair bit of homework! It arrived next day, on a pallet.
It was easy to assemble on my own, and it was obvious on putting together, that it was a quality product.
You can download the full English instruction manual from Simon’s website!
I have carried out some turning on it, and am extremely pleased with both the product and the help and after sales service given by Simon.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced but well built lathe with a 5 year parts warranty, I feel sure this will suit your needs.
