DMT450 445mm Wood Lathe 240V
What a brilliant machine for the money. I'm new to woodturning and jolly glad I picked this one. It's quiet, robust easy to use even for the begginer. Within an hour of setting up I had made an auctioneers gavel. Just remember to keep chisels sharp.

great compact lathe
Have owned 2 larger lathes over past years but space saw the need for a smaller model, this fits the bill delivered within 48 hours and ready to use, no need to bolt down so smooth and its own weight keeps it very steady quietest lathe have owned so easy to adjust look forward to long use
would recommend to anyone with limited space and not a lot of expense to get started.

Great lathe at a great price
Got this just before Christmas and have spent a few weeks getting used to it before writing a review.
Excellent value for money the lathe is well made and solid. The instruction manual could be a bit more detailed but you soon learn what's what. The speed changing method is a bit fiddley but for the money that's to be expected. All in all a very good purchase.

Priceless (Well nearly )
I nearly had a fit when the delivery driver said"I've got a pallet for you". I was expecting a SMALL lathe after all! Well it was small, ish, but what a weight, I had to get a truck to move it. Everything about it said QUALITY, from the box and packaging to the machine itself, smooth and effortless running, and after tracing a noise in the headstock to a loose drive pulley rubbing on the casing (only needed a screw tightening ) an alun key is provided and problem was solved, pity it wasn't checked out properly at inspection, however
that said I think it,s brilliant, Just the size I require and at a super price.
