    I'm trying hard to fight the GAS syndrome that I suffer from ....(Gear aquisition syndrome.. that is)...

    Its tempting...I can see how owning a 10ee or even a good clone would keep the GAS calm for a week or two...

    but I already own a DIN 8605 "toolroom-lathe accuracy".....the maximat V13...and I know its not in the same class as a 10ee or cva...certainly not weight wise...but the v13 is a joy to use and very accurate..

    If my primary job was running a machine shop then owning something like a cva would make sense...but I dont...my machines support my day job in electronics and as such there not used heavily...sometimes cleaned more than used..

    I've owned my L5 26 yrs since I was 16 and it now gets all the dirty jobs...which is where owning a heavy duty beast like a TOS make sense to me..

          Been there, done that. Mind you, keeping three was never in the plan, the third one just hung around for longer than expected.

            Peter Neil probably *needs* one though

              one thing I have noticed about CVA'S , they are all 30" between centers, this is an incredibly rare option on a 10ee.

                    I have a friend who once said "Colchester?We have five of those at work,one of them even runs"
                    I just need one more tool,just one!

                        It's been recently repainted with a brush. A freshly repainted machine tool is almost always a bad sign...

                          Why is a CVA or 10EE so cheap when compared to a Myford Super 7, which while they are an excellent lathe are not in the 19EE class by a long shot. I don't know what they cost new in Britain but I have seen them for sale here for close to $13000.00.
                          The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.

                            Two people can pick a Myford up and put it on a bench, as regards why the CVA is so cheap I can't answer that but I'm just grateful they are

                            I wasn't being funny when I say that the Colchester will fetch double the money, some makes, Myford, Bridgeport, Colchester seem to have a popular mystique about them when there are far better machines that usually go cheaper.

                              As John said it's a size thing.
                              Most model engineers look at a CVA and think it's much too big for their shed/single garage*, so go for a smaller "trusted" make or an import.

                              * It is too big for mine (I only have room for a stubby 20" b/c lathe)

                                I too thought it was not a great paint job as the plates were left in an original condition which contrasts badly.
                                Like Tim Leech I also have doubts that it will reach top speed with only 2hp.I knew a guy with a 2hp motor on one and he struggled to get 1500 rpm.
