Frankly, I had been a bit sceptical about those kinds of small lathes, particularly their steadiness and the power of the motors. Alas, this little gem proved me wrong! The torque is outstanding and it is stable enough to handle big projects.
The philosophy of this machine is to combine the modern features of small lathes with the features of big lathes e.g. a swivel headstock which make it the cutting edge in this class.
I have been enjoying working on Coronet and I am looking forward to exploring it more.
