Here is what people are saying about the Wilton 99177 Mini Lathe
1 Star Rating  "Don't buy. Replacement screw impossible to find." 
- Reviewed By Scipio
The screw just to the right of the blue handle has no part number. The manual acts like that screw doesn't even exist. It's a pointed screw that wears out pretty quickly, and good luck finding a replacement. 12 different hardware stores didn't have it, nor could I find it on the internet. I called the company that owns Wilton this month and they didn't know either. If someone in that company had even the most basic element of common sense to fix this problem, I'd give this a 4 or 5 start rating and not 1. Besides this screw it would be a great product.
 
5 Star Rating  "Happy Newbie" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This lathe is the first tool I've seriously used for any kind of woodworking. So this is the first lathe I have ever used and I am very happy with it. That said, I highly recommend the Wilton mini-lathe for beginners. No assembly required, no fine tuning- I just turned it on and started wood-turning.

I bought the lathe to make chess pieces and I've made several already, even a knight (which I'll have to whittle a little for the horse's head). The speeds are perfect- as fast as I need to do details and whatnot, and slow enough to sand the pieces when finished. I've seen some lathes that don't have the variable speed knob- having one seems a huge plus for me.

Don't let anybody tell you you can't do faceplate work on it. I just made a beautiful little cup out of a sycamore branch using the small faceplate. It took me two days but I finally have a carefully cut cup about 4 inches in diameter, 4 inches high. For much of it, I used the live center in conjunction with the faceplate- you do have to be careful (my chisel got stuck and knocked the piece right out of its screws once or twice). It also comes with a large faceplate (5 1/2"?). I'll try to make a bowl with that next time.

Just to reiterate- I am a novice, I know nothing of other lathes and I am a beginner at wood-turning; I highly recommend this lathe to any beginner who might read this review.

 
4 Star Rating  "A Real Gem" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from New England
I was quite surprised by this lathe. Minor assembly was easy and straightforward, and center to center alignment was dead-on right out of the box. The "soft start" motor caused a little consternation when it didn't spin right away when I turned it on, but this is a really nice feature. Shaft play and runout are nearly non-existent, and the live center provided is more than acceptable. The variable speed control gives an adequate range of speeds for roughing, sanding and finishing.
I have used this lathe to turn many pens (the purpose for which I bought it) and it has exceeded my expectations. I have also done some small amount of face turning, and was well-pleased with the results. My only complaints are these: A little more power would not go unappreciated for face-turning; and the tailstock spindle grub screw tends to loosen up over time allowing the spindle just a little too much play.
For the price, an excellent lathe for pen and spindle turning; underpowered for larger face turning.

I bought and have used this lathe.

- in general, it's OK. It is a pen lathe, you won't be doing large work on it.

- tool rest was too high. Had to hack saw 3/8" to 1/2" from tool rest base, but that was easily doable in five minutes - there was plenty of metal under it. Don't understand why it was so high. Of course there is a height adjustment, but the lowest available was about the height of the turning axis. It needs to be able to go a little lower.

- there is a delayed start - after you switch it on there is a delay of 1-2 seconds and then it starts. This doesn't seem like a feature called 'soft-start', which my Makita router does; the Makita starts immediately and winds up to speed in a few seconds. This is just a delay. I'm wondering if it is a defect, but it runs OK otherwise.

- variable speed is nice, wish I had it on my Jet Mini lathe.

- if you want to turn pens, get the Morse taper mandrel (#1), not the screw-on type. The former allows the mandrel to slide into it, changing length based on the pen. The screw-on is constant length and you make up gaps by putting on more bearings. (either of these is a non-Wilton accessory)

If I had just one lathe, this wouldn't be it, but I have guys over (we make pens and sell them to benefit the relief arm of our church) and we needed the extra lathe capacity. For pens-only, it's OK.

4 Star Rating  "Did not work out of box." 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Clover, SC USA
Right out of the box my lathe would not work. After checking my outlet worked and I had power I checked the fuse. I then found the ground wires behind the switch box to be loose and after I fixed that the motor started. No other problems noted. Lathe runs good now and is what I had expecteded. I read other reviews and would agree with most that this lathe is solid and a good beginners lathe. Just to let everbody know that wilton has been bought by JET.
