Great point on the extra length of the 733, and that being a better compliment to my Rikon. My wife and I tend to do a lot more face plate / bowl / vessel work than spindle work. Unfortunately, space is at a super premium in my small, weirdly shaped basement shop, so that pushes me toward the shorter 838. Grizzly does offer a bed extension that also doubles as tool rest in a lower mounting position for larger faceplate turning when the headstock is slid to the end of the bed.

Also great point about the heavy lift of removing the tailstock. I almost always take the tailstock off the Rikon when doing any face plate turning. Plus, I need to set it somewhere. I’ll have to think about a plan for that.

Jack Lewis,

Thank you for the helpful info on your Grizzly experience :)
