Mini lathe decision

John Haylow Bracebridge Ont
>I'm getting close to purchasing a mini lathe. I am trying to decide between the Jet JML1014 and the General 25-100M1 Maxi lathe.

There is a significant weight difference between the two, the Jet weighting 69lbs and the General 106lbs.

The price is within $10, so there is no issue in that respect. Jet also makes the 1014 in a variable speed but I am told that it is not available in Canada.

Any thoughts?

John
