Delta 16" Steel bed - VS aka X5 Lathe

Chris K.
>I have searched the archives and simply cannot believe that there is not more than 1 applicable thread and a handful of mentions of the Delta electronic VS 16" Steel Bed lathe that they are now calling the X5.

I have read exaustfully the praises of the PM3520A, and have even turned on one recently which was very nice. I also managed to turn on the Delta but I was too new to turning to know what I was looking for, about 2 years ago.

Is there anyone out there that uses/has used one of these machines? The savings over the PM can be anywhere from $500 - $1000 depending on where the quotes are from.

I would appreciate any feedback on this higher end American made delta lathe.

Thank you
