Chris Berberich from Connecticut really likes that with the sliding headstock he can move everything towards the tailstock end of the lathe and just stand in a normal position. Chris goes on to say:
This is just a pleasure to be turning on. I did a class last weekend on a rickety old machine, practically falling apart. I did feel guilty when they went around the room and asked about equipment and I told them about my new lathe. Having a Robust is like being a teenager and getting a Ferrari for your 16th birthday.
