Stories & Testimonials

Impressive Groove Cutting with No Chatter

Austin Paruch from Paruch Automotive was so thrilled with his new Baileigh lathe he gave it a heart-eyes emoji when he posted about it on Instagram. He also noted the lack of "vibration/chatter" on a shallow cut. “So far I am impressed! Great machine.” Here's a video demo of Paruch “cutting a groove for an O-ring on this quick fill gas cap for a custom application.”
