    There are lots of opinions, and most of them are right if given the right scenario. A Ferrari is awesome as a car, but...

    I have an old Sebastian or Sebastian May 10" lathe with 4' bed I'd sell. And it looks like you are kind of local. Its mostly there. Have the...

    Probably should pass on the Warner and Swasey lathes. From what I've heard, you want to be able to thread and do gunsmithing. The W&S would be clumsy for that.
