Customer reviewsReliable, Consistent Lathe
So far I m really enjoying this lathe. Started turning pens back in September 2017 and have made about 60 of them in total so far. It is a well-built machine. The only downside to this particular lathe is that in order to adjust the RPMs you need to shut it off and reset the belt to the desired speed. Being new to the hobby, I would have opted for the Variable Speed lathe from Jet in the same 1015 series had I known better. Overall a great product. Though more expensive than your beginners lathe, you get what you pay for.
