Well I finally did it, Woodcraft put it on sale for $250.00 off introductory price and I took the cheese. I have been researching lathes for some time and this one had everything I wanted in a lathe and imo was the best bang for the buck. I will be doing a full review of this lathe as I go along. This is an all new lathe from laguna and designed by them, not just a cookie cutter lathe rebranded with their name on it. I am very impressed with this lathe so far, well thought out and designed and seems to be very well built and heavy duty. 2hp 3 phase motor that runs on 220v single phase power through a vfd inverter. It has 2 speed ranges with a simple quick belt change. So lets start with some pics! My new baby in the backroom at woodcraft waiting to go home with me. So nice to have the guys load the 450lb lathe with a fork lift for me! It took 2 of us to slide it off the forks and into the truck. Ready to roll! I'll be posting more as I go along here. I will try and cover everything from unpacking to assembly, first impressions, etc.
