That’s pretty amusing advice! There’s no hour meter and it’s a lathe rebadged all over the world by 101 different vendors. Axminster are covering themselves, making it crystal clear that it’s for light hobby use only, not trade so that people don’t abuse their (in my experience excellent) 3 year warranty. I wouldn’t expect to use it all day on heavy items. To be fair, if you get that hooked, you’ll soon realise it’s limitations and know what you really want. My current lathe costs a lot more new (I was very lucky to buy it second hand) and would happily work all day every day. Horses for courses!
