From the looks of that lathe, It looks really nice. I think I would never own one. the motor appears to be a brand specific part. what I mean is it doesn’t use a standard base. I am 31 and when I am in search of machines the #1 thing I look at is whether the parts to maintain and repair a machine are specific to a machine or can I source them locally. motors, belts, bearings, switches, and wear items. at my age I am stocking my shop with iron I intend to die with. I don’t mean to bash Bailegh, my intentions are to help you to make a more serviceable machine. I have never owned a lunchbox planer for this reason, if the motor gives out you and stop making part then it becomes scrape or frakenmachine. when I say you guys stop making parts I mean the machine has become to old, lets face it we as lumberjocks can’t expect you to make parts for ever. I hope this is looked at from a constructive view. By the way thanks for Shellys TS I think she is in love.
