    I beg to differ, Monarch 10EE has a 12.5" swing and will cut darn near anything...

    Joe, my Porter Cable is 12" and weighs in close to a ton, flexible it is not, very rigid.

    I was waiting for some one to mention the Monarcs

    I stand corrected - There are some lathes of less then 13" swing that will take stout cuts of hard metals.

    My point being the South Bend 9" is no more Flexible then most other 9" lathes.

      I will second MickeyD on what he said, not that I am all that good at it. But he makes sense to me.

      Thanks,
