I received serial #008 today, and noticed that the speed control doesn't go below 200 RPM- I saw in another thread that Frank and Ed also have 'sensitivity' problems in the low end (hmmm, that didn't sound right).

Are these lathes capable of being driven at 50-100 RPM?

I'm speaking with Grizzly now, and hope to get to the bottom of this- I suspect they're using a linear (not logarithmic) pot, and this may be part of the problem...
