I’ll also second Wildwood’s comments. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of those midi lathes (if that’s what you’re in the market for). I personally have the Delta 46-460, and it has been a joy to use. But as oberturned stated above, larger lathes = more mass and better stability, which is why I’m looking at a full sized lathe early next year. Mind you, I love my Delta, so I’ll be keeping it for small projects and to use for a dedicated function to speed up things like pens.
