There are a few of us in LJ’s who are owners of the Harbor Frieght Lathes. My last posting was more than 2 weeks ago? Seems like yesterday. Have you experienced any difficulties with your lathe? How would you compare it to other laths you have experience using?
What was the reason you bought your lathes?
I have a small budget, and the features compared to the price were really good. I bought mine on-line and delivery was timely. some folks in our previous discussion have a store near them and got a great deal. I think the warrenty is rather useles if you don’t use the lathe right away. I’m not sure about parts and service.
I believe the fit and finish for my lathe is very good. Especially for the price?
I have gotten some feedback on the middle quality and price lathe tools. HSS and apparently they hold a decent edge. Any thoughts?
Looking to hear from other LJ’ers
