Very good if a little over priced

Nice little lathe I got it for my daughter to make wooden rings and my full size lathe was to big.
I have to say I am using it quite a lot.
I do most of my pen making and anything small.
I would say you need a chuck and a set of pen making chisels.
Very well made but over priced.

Great piece of kit for any budding turner.

Admittedly after purchasing this i thought id made a mistake and should of gone for a more powerful lathe. To my suprise this little thing is a powerhouse im turning light pulleys and things of that size and bigger. Using my preferred wood "Matured Oak" i get some beautiful results. Nice sharp detailed work. Tighten your work piece tightly and the machine will not halt as mentioned. Also make sure you have a razor sharp set of chisels. I use very little pressure and cuts thru oak like butter. Oh and get yourself the 3 key chuck and drill chuck for tailstock. This will make your machine more versatile. I can say for sure Proxxon is quality.

Proxxon DB250 Micro Woodturning Lathe

I thought I`d better write my review, after using the lathe for some two years. Having given the lathe sufficient time to reveal any faults, I can state categorically, it has ample power for turning small objects, in my case fishing float bodies and components parts. It has never slowed down, as experienced by Mr Kinnaer. The attachments available ie chucks, for the lathe only increase its use and application. In all, fantastic value and excellent performance

proxxon woodturning lathe

After good reviews on here and advise from other woodturners that I know I decided to contatact axminster tools to see if they had any in stock. they were extremly helpful and the service they provided was excellent. My lathe came back today and its an excellent lathe it do not slow down when turning. Quality built and worth every penny. Its excellent for model building . BRILLIANT.

Excellent for very small pieces

I am both a user of a "standard" big lathe and the Proxxon DB 250 and found the later to be better for the very small dowels I have to turn for miniature furniture. Like S. R. Smith, I think this lathe is excellent for what it is designed for. My only regret is that the four jaw chuck is in ABS plastic instead of metal like the three jaw chuck. Overall I am very happy with my Proxxon micro lathe and love his very portable size.
