  • Lathe Comparison

    I am buying a new lathe. I would like to know if anyone has input on the Enco 20x80 Heavy Duty Gap Bed Engine Lathe.My reason for this machine is the swing over cross-slide 12" and the 3 1/2" spindle bore. Does any one have input on quality or performance compared to other manufactures of this type?

    I would look for a Polish lathe (TOS or Adrychow) if you can - built like tanks and real workhorses. The are used a lot up here to make drill stem adapters for drilling companies - the shops ride 'em hard and put them away wet...they kick ass!

        I wish they were considerate enough to offer a 10X24, or 12X36.
