      The lathes look nice, but they seem to have a rather low maximum speed.

        Doozer You are right about the L taper having a long stickout. In my case my lathe is a 17" with a sliding gap that opens a bit over 30" and allows almost a 30" swing in the gap. I have never found the stickout to be a problem with my mostly hobby projects 😁.

          1550 is fine for me. I rarely ever get that high. 50 on the low end is a little fast, but reasonable.

            You guys really don't think that is a lit if features for that price point ?
            my lathe has more bells and whistles, a bit heavier, 16 inch swing...bigger spindle bore, and camlock ......and its probably around 14 K to buy. ..

              Yeah man, I rarely get that high either. But it is the holidays.
