Price match ordering experience.

Comments On Jan 16, 2018:I have been researching lathes for what I wanted to upgrade to for months. The Laguna Revo 1836 has been at the top of the list for quite some time. Seems I find myself searching the internet for reviews almost everyday. Finally saw the Laguna Revo On Sale at two other vendors and remembered that Craft Supplies has a price match offer. After checking out the full cost of the lathe and shipping at the other vendors, I decided to check with Craft Supplies. Not only did they honor the price match, their shipping and handling beat the others by a long-shot. I finally pulled the trigger and bought my new Laguna Revo 1836. This review is for the shopping experience. When I receive my lathe, I will come back and review the product.

Awesome lathe

Comments On Dec 09, 2017:I have had this lathe for several months now and love it. It's very well constructed, powerful, accurate and a real pleasure to turn on. I have turned many large bowls, used it for coring, allot of hollowing and it has handled everything without a hitch. This is the 5th lathe I have owned and I think this is the one I will be keeping for many years to come. With the bolt on extension and the ability to turn up to 32" dia. I can't imagine needing anything else. Recommended!!

Excellent new lathe

Comments On Nov 07, 2017:After finishing a woodturning class I was in the market for a new lathe. The Laguna 18/36 was my choice (I was nervous for it is hard to find real reviews). It arrive in perfect condition (very heavy and I used an engine lift to help assemble). The fit and finish is very good and the unit has some real mass, The mobile wheels work perfectly and I can easily move the lathe around the shop. The unit runs perfectly, starts & stops on a dime. Plenty of power (2hp 240v), quiet and runs true. A true home run of a machine. I own top of the line hobbyist tools, PM band saws, Unisaw, Lie-Nielsen hand planes, etc. and this lathe is up there with any of them. I used several lathes at the turning school and this is the smoothest. You can't go wrong with this lathe. I also added the Vicmar-120 chuck (very happy with it)

Great value lathe

Comments On Aug 11, 2016:I have been using my lathe for several months and am very pleased. The lathe has performed well with no malfunctions or problems even when turning large and out of balance bowl blanks. I feel it is a great alternative to some more expensive lathes of similar size. Great features for the money spent.Packaging and delivery time were great. Thanks

Excellent lathe and worth every penny!!!!!

Comments On Oct 21, 2015:I purchased the 18/36 in July of 2015, before Craft Supplies was carrying the lathe if memory serves, but I did want to provide potential buyers with a good review. I have to say this is an amazing piece of equipment. I've turned on the largest majority of higher-cost and reputable lathes and like many turners I've slowly stepped up in lathe quality as money will permit. However, all turners also know that lathes are like anything else: you get what you pay for. For the purpose of this review I'm only going to make brief comments about the higher-end competition to the Laguna 18/36 lathe as I certainly want to maintain professionalism. Let's just say that professional turners and serious hobby turners tend to be attracted towards these aforementioned "higher-end" brands. If you've done your homework and asked good questions, or happen to be a turner familiar with the competition, you know the brands I'm talking about. The Laguna 18/36 is literally half the money that many of the strong competitors will charge, in some cases nearly a third, but just as capable. In effort to plead my case, the Laguna 18/36 is worth every penny spent. I've turned everything from pens and bottle stopper tops to a large 16 inch bowl (that started with a 20 pound blank). Never once did deep bowl gouge cuts bog the 2hp 220V motor on the Laguna. The lathe is heavy enough that it won't walk (chatter) with large projects being chucked. The variable speed is extremely versatile. I thoroughly enjoy the lower-profile bed, especially considering I sit when I turn (and for shorter woodturners I think this is also ideal). The lathe comes nicely equipped and is ready to go after assembly. The motor is very quiet, even at high RPM. The control panel is nicely laid out and the digital RPM readout is easy to see (to the point that it will nicely light my two-garage woodshop when the lights are out). What I also appreciated is the president of Laguna himself responded to an email that I sent regarding the lathe. Laguna is easy to work with, backs their product, and is quick to answer questions. Because of this, and their quality, the Laguna reputation is quickly catching on between professional and serious hobby woodturners. Good luck in our endeavors if you're considering this lathe. Just do your homework and ask a lot of questions before making a purchase. Like I said before, this lathe is worth every penny but I'm also going to say it's a lot of lathe for the brand new turner.
