JET mini-lathe

>How many are rushing right out there and buying one of the last JET mini's? The ones that require manual belt changing... TCOTN has them for $199 - no shipping no taxes.. I can't make up my mind whether to jump or not... I do some work on a bigger JET lathe - it works great - but after messing around with a mini at Woodcraft the other day and seeing how well the tailstock center and the headstock center line up - I thought it might be a great pen and other smaller project lathe??? Any pros and/or cons on this little beauty??
