The state income tax man was a little generous this year. I’ve ordered a new piece of hardware for my shop. I ordered a Grizzly wood lathe model G0462. I ordered it on Saturday and it’s going to be delivered either today or tomorrow. Another example of the great customer service I’ve come to expect from Grizzly.
I’ve never used a lathe in my life. I’m anxious to try my hand at turning, but I’m also a little afraid. Turning seems to be something that can be fairly dangerous. Running a board through a table saw isn’t too dangerous if you keep your hands away from the blade and take steps to prevent kickback. I’m a bit afraid of having a tool catching on the wood and having it ripped from my hands.
Anyways, I’ll provide a review of the lathe once I get it and set it up. Would everyone prefer a review of the quality first and a follow up of how it works in use? Or, would you prefer I wait till I’ve had some experience with it?
