do you have a budget to work within ??
brands and prices are all over the map these days can you narrow down
what you will be making on the lathe and what price range you are married to.
I am on my 2nd HF 12×33”. the only thing I don’t like about it is the low speed
is not below 700rpm. which would be really nice to have.
electronic speed control would be my #1 requirement for my next lathe.
