Customer evaluation for "Stratos XL Woodturning Lathe"
29 Jul 2021

World Class Customer Service

Firstly the lathe, I have worked on a few different lathes over the years and been lucky enough to use some of the big US lathes we all see on YouTube. In my opinion the Stratos XL is the best, everything has been machined to very high tolerances and you can feel that when you operate the machine.

Secondly the customer service has been world class, kind friendly and very responsive, even during their workshop move. I always recommend Hope Woodturning during conversation and the people that come for tuition.

Exceeded all my expectations

Absolutely amazing machine, it has transformed the way I work, as Simon says in his video "It's the only lathe you will ever need" As ever Simons service and delivery were impeccable . Thank you

Lovely piece of kit, all that I could wish for in a lathe

I bought this lathe to replace a VB36 and a Poolwood lathe because I need to downsize my workshop. I though that I would miss the VB but I can honestly say that this machine is so good that I will not miss the VB. it is exceptionally well built and can handle large blanks with no difficulty. It is quiet and very smooth running
