I saw a recent listing for a Rikon Mini Lathe, model 70-050VS for $425. A Nova chuck, turning tools and a few other accessories are included for that price. Any thoughts on the price and quality of the lathe?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Seems like a good deal to me..i may be mistaken but the rikon lathe sells for about 400$ and it was another 150 for the variable speed upgrade. Plus depending which size another 150 for the chuck. What colour is the lathe? Green or blue?

Thanks for the response. The lathe is green. I believe Rikon’s current color scheme is blue.

Ok so that means it is at least 6 years old. Around the same time I was looking at basically the same lathe untill I caught wind that they were coming out with a new one. I ended up buying the new 70-220VSR and so far love it!
