Subject:
Best lathe for club demos

Ed Moore
>We all would like to have the biggest top-of-the-line lathe for our club. That is usually said by those who neither help buy it nor must move it frequently.

Our club is not quite two years old and we want to get a lathe for demonstrations. Budget is a prime consideration. We know that we want electronic variable speed and a swing of at least 14". The obvious first thought is a Jet, but what model?

I am requesting your suggestions/recommendations.

Thanks,

Ed Moore
