Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

just had 2 weeks
So far I like it but have only had a chance to turn a couple of practice pieces Moved up from a shop smith which I will keep but wanted a dedicated lathe with forward and reverse and slower speeds with a standard bed that would accept standard accessory systems. It's extremely quiet, well built, easy to assemble..

Purchasing from Tyler Tool went very well and would recommend them as well.

This is one awesome machine.
Owned a Nova DVR XP for 8 years. Not one problem. I used it an average of 4 hours a day, 6 days a week for 8 years. Still going strong. Sold it for $800 to buy my Galaxie. I love my new lathe; smooth, quite, powerful, versatile. She is a honey.

This is a great lathe and reasonable price
I bought this about 3 months ago. I am new to wood turning. I retired after 40+ years in construction. This is a great tool. I love the variable speed. Many friends have Powermatic an Jet lathes that cost much more, this does most everything that the more expensive lathes do. This is a well made piece of equipment. I would buy it again in an instant.
