    Comments about Robust Tools Deluxe American Beauty Lathe :

    I've been turning for 3 years and got this lathe 3 months ago. It is an absolute pleasure to use because of the ease in positionong the banjo, tool rest, and tailstock on the stainless steel ways. With the tilt-away feature, the tailstock is out of the way for full tool movement and the gas-assist needs only 5 pounds pressure to bring it back into position.
