Topic tags/keywords: question

I am looking for a decent VS lathe at resonable price to use as a spare/second machine. The description of the “Grizzly G 0632” sounds about right with it’s features and $ 1295 price. It is a 16 X 42 with 1.5 HP 220V single PH, and goes to 0 speed. Has anyone had experience or know about this one?

Did you get the Grizzly? If not what did you get?

Did not get the Grizzly, but got the Jet 1642 that Redmond had brought to symposium for use as a demo. It had 3 days use by Jimmy Clewes, Elsworth, and others whom said they use them often and were good machine for the money. Discounted at end of classes, it was about $1300. Works great! I also got a “Steel City” VS mini that I love as well.

Ah a lathe… some day :-) But I guess if I filled my shop with all the tools I wanted I’d have no room to move LOL!
