This is my first CNC wood lathe, so I can't really do any meaningful comparison. What I can say is that it exceeded my expectations. The lathe seems very nice and I'm not having any problem getting 0.01mm or better accuracy when under load. Instructions / software is included on a CD. Instructions are adequate and the software basic. I'm using the light version of Eagle for board design not the software that came with it. Once I convert that to gcode, I am using the JDpaint software that came with it for CNC control. Again basic but adequate. This is an excellent Machine at a very affordable price. Be prepared to do a little trouble shooting when it arrives. STYLECNC was very prompt and professional in helping to get everything in order.
