Very helpful and informed folks at Black Forest. I don’t know lathes but do other machinery- the fit and finish of this tool are past expectations. Small amount of use confirms that judgement.
Very good machine. I upgraded from a king lathe and am very impressed with quality and sturdiness of machine. Very good machine for the price
I purchased the Revo 12/16 last winter and embarked on a new hobby it is very versatile and allows flexibility to turn small projects up to larger bowls. The variable speed is a big asset when turning projects allows up to 3400 rpm for pens and as slow as 300 for larger bowls. For a beginner i found this a great addition to my workshop. I would recommend this lathe, it is well made and very well machined.
