I have wanted to tinker with wood turning for a long time. After converting an old drill press to a lathe I was hooked, however the old drill press had issues. A lot of them. This Harbor Freight lathe is pretty large and was very affordable. After a discount sale and then a 25% coupon the price came to $112. It’s pretty typical Harbor Freight construction, but not bad. Feels very solid. The motor is quieter than I would have guessed. And when it is bolted to the bench it’s extremely stable. Stay tuned for future lathe projects. Thanks for taking a look.
