Subject:
TD - 1640 vs Vicmarc VL300 vs Stubby 750 ??

Ed Moore
>TD,

I hope to be in a position to buy a lathe soon. If one aims high there is the Oneway 2436, the Robust 25 - 28, and the Stubby 1000. Your choice there? Why?

But suppose reality strikes and I have to aim a little lower. It would seem like a Oneway 1640 with extension would be about the same as a Vicmarc VL300 with the bells and whistles, or a Stubby 750. Your choice there? Why?

The impact of your answer will depend on the quality of the Why's.

I know that you aren't busy right now, but thought that you might like to chew on this one. ;^D

Thanks,

Ed
