As a professional turner, I use this lathe when exhibiting at the regional turning shows. It fits neatly in the back of my car and is easy to carry about. It is almost vibration free and allows me to demonstrate my pen making techniques with ease. The variable speed control dial allows for ultra fine finishing. An excellent lathe for small projects.

I originally had a record twin bar lathe but I could not get on with it. This cast bed lathe is perfect for my needs as I now can tuck it away under the work bench when not in use. It is very quiet yet very powerful for a compact lathe. I must credit Fox as i damaged the motor cover when bring a load of wood into my shed and Fox replaced it free of charge. Well done Fox
