Quality variable speed ┬ámini woodturning lathe, ideal for a range of precise woodwork projects. The Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe is an enticing machine based on it’s price point, horse power, and features. At least you didn’t buy the Central Machinery lathe like I did from the traveling tool show. Gee, I would think you could trade or sell a couple of your turnings to get the new lathe with .
The Jet 1014VSI is a great MINI lathe, but is a whole different animal than the 1642-2EVS which is a super lathe for bigger stuff and cost much more. One thing you can do to dampen that vibration is to get one of those poly belts that come in links. Rich, with all due respect, I am reviewing the machine I have and I am reporting the issues I have had with it.
I have contacted Grizzly’s customer service department about every issue I have ever had with the machine. I understand that their are a lot of individuals who own Grizzly equipment and think they are great. My expectations were that this machine would be reliable, dependable, and a decent investment.

Perhaps if the machine just sat quietly in the corner of my shop except for an occasional use, I would love it. In one year I have replaced the belt around 10 times, replaced all bearings, replaced the tool rest, and replaced the tail stock hand wheel twice.
They agreed that the trouble I’m having is unusual, and they are shipping me parts at no charge. Tool Base #95288 and made middle and lower shelves where I can put sand bags on the bottom and tools on the middle shelve. At first I missed the hand wheel and the quick access to a sanding (or tool tip touch up) disc some of the other models have mounted on the far side of the headstock, but then realized that once I moved up from the sewing machine types to the big boys, I had to give some of those up.. The heavy cast iron bed really helps hold this in place while you work, and you won't warp or bend the bed rails like in some VERY CHEAP other brands. Fortunately the 1"x8 TPI thread is pretty common so you should be able to find what you want.
Keep in mind the initial low cost of this lathe will allow you to buy some of the more expensive toys to go along with it!!!Cons: If you break a belt, order (because the stores don't carry them) both a new one AND a set of the variable speed pullys.
All the sawdust and shavings get sucked into the motor, and causes heating which shortens the life.


Blowing it out regularly with a leaf blower helps, but I solved the problem by attaching a short section of air conditioning vent- it extended the intake towards the tail stock to get it out of the dust zone.The adjustment handles on the locking setscrews for the tool rest are dismal.
After snapping off or stripping 3, I just replaced the handle and screw with a hex bolt and keep the matching box wrench hanging from the stand. It took a little tweaking to get the points of both head and tail stock to match up perfectly, but that is to be expected. I recommend this lathe for the average Joe (or Jane) and have taught many people how to turn wood on it. Like many HF products, this one needs to be finished, and a few things may need adjustment or replacement. Bore out the banjo and arm to 1" and get some good tool rests with hardened steel inserts.
I use a 15 mm wrench to tighten the headstock down - the handle isn't in the way and it provides more leverage.The only time it bogs down is with very heavy sanding.
If it bogs with a cutting tool, you either have a dull tool or are taking way too heavy of a cut.
