Delta Lathe vs Old Craftsman Lathe

Jay Fischer
>Does anybody have an opinion (?!) on the Delta over the old Craftsmans? I don't like the tool rest on my Craftsman since it's cantilevered and tends to wobble when you're working close to the edge on the big tool rest. The Delta looks like a more solidly mounted assembly. Is there a replacement/after market tool rest that would work well on the Craftsman? Mine's the one with the 2 1/4" diameter tube to which the banjo clamps.

Thanks!
Jay
