Low cost, but underpowered for this class

High points: Swiveling and sliding headstock. Smooth and easy speed control. Comes with a tool-rest extension.

Low points: Tool-rest and tailstock locking nuts work loose and require retightening often to achieve positive lockdown. Future models will sport nylon locking nuts to cure this problem. The 1⁄2-hp motor offers too little power for a lathe of this size and capacity. Lathe stands too low and needs to be raised for operator comfort. Inconvenient on/off switch position. Considerable vibration.

More points: Offers all the features of the bigger lathes (except horsepower) at a low price.
