Make sure you check which location U.S. or China for which has cheaper price if you are in the U.S.
Lathe bed is 12 inches long and allows 7 inches between centers, the best I think you can hope for is a 5 – 6 inch final project.
Here are some tips I think will make this a must have tool in the shop.
Extend the bed length 6 inches, get real lathe tools and or better smaller tools. Replace mount with spur or better yet clamping jaw. They 3 and 4 teeth clamping heads; however it is not for this particular mini lathe but may work. Make a better tool rest which can be achieved with buying steel angle iron 6 inches long.
I can vouch for this company and I have bought a large number of items for myself and others and have not had a single issue other that long shipping delays. On average you can expect 10 days in the U.S. to receive goods, and sometimes longer but 10 seems to be the average. The service is not fast or packaged pretty but its practically free in it’s low pricing and of course free shipping and no tax.
