Greetings all. Just getting started in wood turning. I purchased a Grizzly GO462 lathe and am quite pleased with its performance. I am replacing the tool rest with a Robust rest, 14 inches just is too long for smaller projects. The lower speed of the selectable drive is about 550, and I have had no issue with quality, looseness or anything breaking. It is one heavy lathe, which is good.

I use Robert Sorby tools and the Patriot Chuck systems, quite pleased with the results. I use the One Way sharpening jigs for the tools and it improved my quality by leaps and bounds. My woodshop has a Grizzly dust removal system on all equipment, per my wife's request and my compliance.
