Looking for a new lathe

My friend's lathe is nothing like that. That looks like a cheap chiwan clone. My friend's looks more like a Sharp which is a copy of an HLV.

His lathe looks more like this:

That's a $16,000, 3,500lb lathe made by one the best manufacturers in Taiwan. It isn't a chi com home machine piece of junk.
I have to bite my tongue, I contact the people of SUMMIT and they admit that their machines are made on CHINA and KENT too.
