Does anyone else have any experience with the CQ 9625A lathe sold by Bolton Tools?  I purchased one about a year ago and have found it to be not much better quality than Harbor Freight stuff.  Had to do a lot of work on it just to have a lathe that was really operative.  Had to remove flashing form castings, totally rework apron, rebuild the gear box and many other small things.

I bought this lathe because of some of the features it has and knew that a 7x would be too small. This lathe has a powered cross feed. If any one has any upgrades or experience with this lathe I would like to hear from you.
