New Lathe purchase. *PIC*

John in Abbotsford
>I've only been turning now for a few months but I find that I really enjoy it and after starting with and old Walker Turner, I'm already thinking seriously about getting a better lathe. What I have in mind is the Vicmarc VL175VS swivel head lathe.
I'm thinking that with the option of outboard turning it will meet my needs for a long time, yet is still in the affordable range. I've also looked at the Nova DVR but feel that I'm getting more lathe with the Vicmarc and for less money.
Any pro's or cons on this particular lathe.
