Help me choose a new lathe

Michael Stadulis in New Jersey
>Hi gang,

I've struggled with an older Shopsmith that I got for little $ and use as my lathe, but the rest is not terribly ridgid and I'm considering a replacement. My primary work is going to be on centers but who knows, I may get hooked on bowls like so many of you so I'd like to make a purchase for that eventuality. I was thinking of the PM or Jet versions with cast iron legs. Any other suggestions or comments for further consideration would be appreciated. Bill G.....please don't tell me to get a Big Blue. ;o)
