I just looked up the lathe, It looks nice except for one thing…manual belt change for changing speeds, that would be a deal breaker for me. If you haven t picked it up yet, I m sure you can upgrade to a lathe with a variable speed.

I don t disagree with you, but this was the best I could get for the $1000 my wife gave me. Like most woodworkers, I ve got so much on my wish list, I can t justify spending any more on the lathe.

Later on you can get the DVR motor upgrade. My wife got it after about 5 years and loves it. I think it was $600. That still is a lot less than the DVR lathe was.
