There is a group in Phoenix Az called Vally metal group that has a lot of activity with buying & selling { http://groups.yahoo.com/group/valleymetal/?yguid=203636119 }.
As far as the PM Mathews there is a group on yahoo groups "Bluemachining" & there are a lot of members that bought the PM1127 and can fill you in on the machine, I have the PM1440B on order and have had a long :mad: wait but hope to get it next week:D

Do you have room for a 14x40?

several smaller potential candidates on Yuma CL in the 2000 or less range.

Just one caution.

If you expect to work with larger diameter parts, you might find the power of the machine to be relatively weak. it really depends on whether their description on the website is correct, or if the manual is correct.

For larger diameter work, you typically slow the RPM down to keep the "surface speed" within reasonable limits.

The website gives two speed ranges, 70 to 380, and 380 to 2000. That could be OK, if the motor is 1 HP as is implied but not stated (the inverter is 1 HP). Assuming the motor 1 HP is at 380 rpm, you would still have almost 1/5 HP available at 70 RPM, which is not great, but may be OK.

The manual gives ranges of 50 to 850 and 110 to 1800 rpm. With a 1 HP motor developing the 1 HP at 850 RPM, then at 50 RPM you would have only about 1/20 HP at 50 RPM, which is not useful at slow speeds.

Check what happens in this video at minimum speed and 20 thou depth of cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05vUCdzhoe4

That may be very difficult to find!

Most of his machines are made in China, not Taiwan. The Taiwan machines are much nicer, don't ask how I know. It's out of your price range, but the 1236T, and GT1340 are super nice lathes.

I can't believe I missed that. But there is a nice looking 14x40 near you.. Now could be the time.

I figured, if he puts it in his cart, there is a good chance your wife will buy it for him..

The OP should get back to me. Because maybe this lathe goes cheap. Living in a machine desert can also result in deals.
