This machine is equipped with a full swivel head, which helps to prevent inaccurate creations and pains from bending over. Also, the motor has a low speed of 100 RPM, giving you an even wider range than most lathes. The intelligent motor also records various parts of your work, such as your favorite speed, to allow you to make your masterpieces wasting as little time as possible.


Some users have found their lathes to be hard to work with because of its strength. The 1.75 horsepower motor gives, for some, too strong of a usage. Also, some have had problems with the manufacture of the cast iron, finding pieces that needed to be replaced, which Teknatool offered free replacements for.
