The finest lathe made in the world
Robust Tools makes the finest lathes in the world. I am a very proud owner of the American Beauty. I have had the opportunity to use a few different lathes and Robust is superior to them all. There are many great lathes out there, but the finest lathes are from North America-OneWay and Robust. Robust is simply the best all around. The custormer service is outstanding and the craftsmanship is beyond impeccable. I plan to order a second as soon as I can! If you want the best lathe in the world, give Robust a try. This is a lathe your grandchild will use for a lifetime. Robust Tools.....thank you for such a great piece of equipment.
