Well, Jimbo. Like you and Hockey, I’ve been window shopping for a lathe too. After sifting for hours through every machine in this particular class, my best guesstimate is that the Laguna Revo 18/36 with the 2 h.p. motor (assuming you can run 220v) is the best bang for the buck in it’s class.

If you’re already looking at spending two grand, another $400 bucks for your last “big machine purchase” I can’t imagine not being satisfied with it. It also has plenty of upgradability in the event that you need to add features to get more out of the machine than the stock version offers.

If you want my help in shirking your responsibility, I’m the most irresponsible, best bosom buddy you could ever have! ;^)
