Review of Serious Toolworks LatheReview of the Serious Toolworks Lathe

by Joseph M. Herrmann

Read what an independent reviewer has to say about the Serious Toolworks SL2542 wood lathe. The review is from the summer 2010 edition of Woodturning Design.

Joseph Herrmann takes a four hour drive to Ligonier, Pennsylvania to visit SL2542 lathe owner John McCain, Jr. After describing what was done to try out the SL2542 the review concludes by saying "I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a large, robust lathe on which to do some SERIOUS turning."

This review is a PDF of the actual magazine pages, so you'll see the full review exactly as it was published.
