It's a good looking unit. A guy from our turning club bought one a few months ago. I was at Grizzly when I showed him a "scratched & dented" one in the show room clearance area. I think he paid $1350 or something like that. Since his truck was broke down, I used his trailer and towed it home for him.

Since he'd been using a modified HF lathe and still making great segmented turnings, his work is still great but slot bigger now.

Tell me if you like it. Is it worth the money. Thanks

WoodZee only made the one posting almost 2 years ago. It's not likely you will get an answer.

I actually purchased this lathe August of last year. I didn't get a new one as I was able to get a great deal on the demo version of the G0800 at the Springfield, MO showroom. Let me know if you have any specific questions. I will answer them the best that I can. I will say that I have not turned anything large yet, not do I have much experience turning bowls. I mainly turn pens * bottle stoppers but have been wanting to get into larger things. I also don't have much knowledge of other full size lathe. I have been using a Grizzly Mini 10"x16" for the last 5+ years. I jumped to this big lathe after drooling over it and getting a deal I couldn't refuse.

Thanks for the warm reception. I honestly forgot about this and all my other forums. Been hanging mainly out on a couple Facebook Pen-related groups. Youll have to stop out by my shop. Been lots of changes in the last 6-months or so.

I guess I read the question wrong. I have this hooked to a 15A single phase 220 outlet. If you look at the first page of the spec sheet, it lists the electrical requirements.
