Re: Want to buy a lathe

I don't have experience with the lathe you mentioned in the link, but I know they are Chinese made and their quality is variable.

There are a lot of similar topics on dedicated machining forums and I would suggest you take your time to study the available choices. I know I spent more than a year pondering on the alternatives and finally decided on the Sherline. It is American made and of very high quality and precision.

In any case, prepare to invest more than double the lathe cost in accessories, tools and materials.
