Only thing I don t like about the Grizzly is the miserable 25mm tool rest post.

I don’t really understand why the 25mm banjo hole is so bad. Couldn’t I just put it on the drill press and ream it out to one inch?

Well Jimbo, I don’t see why you couldn’t make the hole bigger, but you were the one that called it miserable. And again, it wouldn’t stop me from making that purchase if everything else about the lathe was to my liking. Seems like a minor modification to make and only if you required additional tool rests that were of the one inch variety.
