Looking for feedback on Grizzlys 10" RT, in particular comparison to Phase 2 and Vertex? Owners or showroom impression.

I have one of those and am quite happy with it. Can you get it with a tailstock??? I had to make a mount to use the tailstock off my lathe with it. I like all the clamping room that a 10" with 6 slots gives you. What size is your table??

I have a suitable Ph 2 tailstock now that will work with the 10", just need to get the dividing plates........table is 9x48.

I also have that 10" Grizzly RT, it is very good, the only bad part for me is the weight, its all I can to do is lift it onto the mill table.

Looks like a copy of a Yausa. So I would say it should be good.

Ditto, ditto, ditto.

I actually dropped it once. Missed my foot, thank goodness. Don't lift it with oily hands.

Ditto to above. I have solved the weight problem with a moving cart. Grizzly had a tall cart with a flat top for sale. I drilled and countersunk holes in a piece of 3/4" plywood and bolted it to the top of the cart. Now by lowering the mill table only a few inches below its normal working height, I can slide the RT from the mill bed to the cart top. Then I roll cart back to its storage location.

Ditto here too. I made a rollaway table as a welding table and keep the RT on it when not in use. I then made a 4 part block and tackle system to lift it off and on.
