Grizzly Industrial’s model G0750G 12" × 36" gunsmithing lathe features an enclosed gearbox for quieter operation, longer gear and bearing life, and fewer oil changes. The lathe’s outboard spindle spider makes it easy to mount gun barrels through the 1.57" spindle bore, the company says. The tailstock can be locked down with a torque wrench for the precise alignment of centers.
 
The lathe features NSK spindle bearings and a short headstock. A heavy-duty stand provides maximum stability while reducing vibration. Spindle speeds range from 60 to 1,500 rpm, and maximum tool bit size is 5/8". The spindle length with a four-jaw chuck is 21 1/4" and 21 3/4" with a three-jaw chuck. The lathe is equipped with a quick-change toolpost, steady rest, follow rest, 6" three-jaw universal chuck, 8" four-jaw independent chuck, 1/2" chuck with arbor, 10" faceplate, live and dead centers, and work light.
