New Lathe

>Hey Everyone!

In a short couple of weeks, I will have the very rare position of having enough funds to purchase a 2 horsie, Oneway 1640. It seems to be one heck of a lathe but for a lot of money.

However, there is always the "but", I have also looked at Powermatic (3520A) which is about $1000 cheaper, give or take.

There in lays my dillemma.....Which one?? Any 1640 owners who would like to chime in on some plusses and minuses, please do! Same with powermatic owners.

The new lathe will be an upgrade to the Jet 1442 that I currently own.

Thanks in advance for any input!

William
