How handy are you at repairing a wood lathe. Grizzly lathes either work great or just eat parts. Cabinet on the lathe shown needs help, noise not uncommon. You can weigh down cabinet with sand bags. Spindle threads 1” x 12 TPI not common today but can still buy accessories. One showing an older model there has been slight design change to on off switch.

This lathe has a history you can read reviews online if look for Grizzly G1495.
