    @9100 I wasnít suggesting that the the 10K is a professional or production level machine.

  3. A suggestion for dealing with hobby machinist posts

    I think this is a gross generalization.

    Lumping all newbies into one camp of credit card happy wannabes doesnít help the discussion.

    As perhaps the only ďamateur hobbyistĒ in this thread maybe a solution looks like the retail vs. wholesale model.

    Advice/Help Needed For New Lathe Purchase

    I havenít said anything to the OP because I donít have anything to add.

    Iím just rather amazed by how harsh some comments are.

    I typically donít go for more than .020 depth of cut in steel. I have no need to hog off deep cuts.
    My 10K is an older model with the flat belts.

    You might be better served by HSS there because they require less hp.
    I use HSS on my 10K almost exclusively.

    Upgrade Motor on SB 1002 10K Lathe

    I have the same lathe with a 1/2 hp motor.

    Is yours a horizontal or underdrive model?

    What kind of work are you doing that 1hp is insufficient?
