I am going with a smithy 1220 add a 6" 4 jaw chuck a 1/2 mt collet and thats it, it runs on 110v and will be just fine for the home stuff i want,(I can go to a real shop 3 miles away for anything beyond)
I looked around hard but for the home shop it will be a good start,and I dont want to go 220V yet I olny have so much cash now.
what is funny is the guys at work where I will have it brought to are all as gung-ho as I am, they cant wait, its a cool "toy".
If I need real big work I can go to the shop and use I have A 1440 goodway, a 14 X 88 mazak,10 x 50 3 hp komet mill, 11 x 54 hitachi sekki horz mill, a p70 pirahhna iron worker, a 50 ton and a 300 ton press, a #2 ws turret lathe and drills up to 2-9/16",burr king, big welders and all the goddies
I think it will be fun to play at home realy just have fun, models,small steam, toys,,,,,
I am ready to have fun and enjoy working in metal.
