Top value in mid-size lathes

High points: Heavy, large headstock adds heft. Thick bed casting with wide ways helps squelch vibration. Great power in all turning conditions. More spindle-speed stops (13) than any other model tested (others have 4 to 8), offering a multitude of control options. Big, easy-to-use handles on the tool rest, tailstock, and headstock. Comes with a tool-rest extension for outboard turning. Quietest machine tested, at 69 db.

Low points: Accessing the on/off switch requires a long reach, though it is large and easy to find. Tailstock lockdown not as secure as some other models, though adequate.

More points: Motor is located well clear of headstock, out of the way of large face turnings. Feels substantial and solid, even with a bolt-together metal stand. Lathe comes preassembled, and the stand goes together quickly.
