Does anyone use the LMS 3536 bench lathe?
I'd like to get more info on the rigidity, repeatability and overall pros and cons about this machine.

Looked at this lathe myself. It say's on the LMS site that this is a Sieg C4 lathe. You my have more luck finding more information online by searching for information under that name. I found a couple of reviews. I actually found some pictures of lathes being assemble in the Sieg facility. Everything on the tables was green. Must have been Grizzly day at the Sieg plant.

Yeah, I saw some reviews and comments in the net, but they are coming from one of the Sieg reps probably. You never know . . .
I'd like to get some info from people who work with this lathe and have an objective opinion.

Is there anyone in Florida who owns a LMS 3536 lathe?
Before I make a buy decision I really would like to see one in action . . .
