    Very nice, Greg!

    Every time I walk into Woodcraft, there's one of the guys who works there that I always visit with - and he's been trying to sell me the same lathe every time. It's become a running joke between the two of us. But, someday, just maybe, I'll be able to surprise him and say, "I'll take it." Looks and sounds to be a great lathe!

    Greg, I know this is an older thread; but, was wondering how you were liking your lathe because I am interested in one of these in the future, particulalry, the 1.5 hp 110 volt model.

    I'm very happy with it, it's a gem compared to what I had (an old delta varible speed)

    Thanks. Have you used any other large newer type lathe to which you can make a comparison?

    I've had a chance to turn on the Laguna, and in the past on a powermatic 3520, and I own a Oneway. For the price it's hard to beat. For the short time I was on the Laguna it seemed well built, controls were smooth and the only thing would be to add some weight to it like Greg did.

    Congratulations! I took the same deal, only at Beaver Industrial Supply because of no Mass sales tax. I got the same pics, same mountain of Styrofoam, and the same sore back. We got a good deal, even though it took a month to get here. UPS delivered it between snowstorms. A friend helped me assemble it taking about three hours. As you say, what a beast! Good luck
