  • Takisawa lathes

    I've noticed a bunch of used Takisawa lathes come up used locally. When I search the archives I see a lot of references to them being Okuma copies. They look more like Victors to me. I know Takisawa is a Japanese company, but I assume these are all from their Taiwanese affiliate.
    I was curious what kind of quality these are. I was really considering Victors and Sharps. Is this a comparable lathe or something more lower-end like a Grizzly or MSC?

    Could these be the same?

      They are right up there with Mori Seiki.
      Better than Victor and Sharp for sure.

        One of these has badges for both Yuasa and Takisawa on it.
