Topic tags/keywords: mini lathes lathes mophorn

Is anyone familiar with or has any experience with Mophorn lathes? I’m looking to buy a “mini” lathe and this brand is on my list as a possibility.

Looks like a dead-ringer for the small Harbor Freight lathe. Which was my first lathe :-) I used it for quite a while then passed it on to a buddy who is still using it regularly and it’s still giving good service. For the price, I think it’s an excellent tool. You just have to set your expectations accordingly. You’re not gonna turn any large bowls but for small bowls and similar projects as well as spindle turning, it’s a solid machine.
