    I bought 2 of these with my pal Hondo

    Shipping was super fast. Communication has been awesome and super easy.

    One of the speed controllers was damaged in shipping, they had another on the way and delivered within 1 week.

    One lathe needed slight adjustments and I was sent tech info for any adjustments I needed to make.

    I definitely recommend this lathe to any Glassblower looking to step their game up but don't want to fork out 10k+

    At the price we got these for I have already happily made my money back

    Speaking for the table top 50mm lathe... The space it takes is minimal, but the time and energy saved is monumental. For me, it was well worth the investment. I would recommend to anyone.

    im sure its a great investment. i just am a hobby guy and although i could prob afford it, i just wouldn't make 4k worth of work to justify it. i guess ill have to figure out how to spin these things by hand until someone local wants to show me some lathe action.

    I purchased a lathe and was pleased with the shipment the customer service was great. The 50mm lathe works fine. Thought I was having an issue with it he offered to send a technician to work on it and just sent a new machine to me no questions asked! Super pleased with the purchase and the customer service and the equipment! Would recommend to others for sure!

    [I was wondering what the 85mm version weighs and found the answer in this post from "the lathe library":]

    The 85 mm size bore floor model Seam lathe -- 34" distance from chuck to chuck
    Height is 50 ", length is 60". width 24" ,weight 1200 lbs.
    S.

    The 50 mm bore size bench top model Seam lathe---23" distance from chuck to chuck.
    Height 29", length is 50", width 20", weight is 500 Lbs

    Speed control and motor are made in india,110 volts and long life but slowest speed is 48 rpm..

    These lathes are made in India but assembled with parts made in USA in Fullerton California and carries a one year gaurantee

    We are Seam lathe manufacturers and give speed control and motor as convenience. this company offers 1750 speed control and motors whose lowest speed is between 45 and 48 rpm,. There are companies who offer lower speed control and motor. or you can distance the motor from the lathe with a longer belt to lower the speed to 25 or lower rpm.
    The lower speed is used by master blowers on their intricate designs and attachments and details, the others who use it are electrical or lab equipment blowers, these are all specialized fields. Our specialty is Seam Lathes guaranteed.

    It's easy enough to add a resistor in line to slow it down in the range you want. We are talking about a part that costs less then a dollar.
