Grizzly G0657

Just looking into getting my first lathe (still), doing a lot of research, does anyone have a Grizzly G0657? that is in my budget for now. I am going to give pen turning a shot, and maybe try to do a couple small bowls. Any thing you all can tell me helps!!

I have the Harbor Freight mini which is the same lathe as the cheaper Grizzly. Its my first lathe so I have nothing to compare it to but I love it. Its been a blast turning pens and such the last couple weeks. Dont know anything about the one you linked.

If I were going to spend as much as the Grizzly that you listed, I would add another hundred bucks and get the Jet 1014. Its currently at Woodcraft for $430 and you get a $100 Woodcraft gift card with the purchase so depending on how you look at things, its about the same price as the Grizz and then use the gift card for a Nova Midi Chuck thats on sale for $110.
