Possibly the best lathe for the money, only 180 bucks. it is not quite as cool as the Hudy auto lathes but is half the price too. it comes with a carbide bit. i used that bit for 3 years before the carbide was gone. and a new bit is only 12 bucks. it takes less than 10 seconds to sharpen the bit with a 6 dollar diamond knife sharpener i bought from Wal-Mart. it took me awhile but i figured out how to sharpen it to get a better cut that i ever got with a diamond bit on several other lathes. if you don't believe me read this http://www.bigjimracing.com/tuningtips.php
the part i want u to read is in the middle some where as why a carbide bit is better than a diamond. and the carbide bit on my lathe cut comms for more than 8 people many running multiple classes and it still lasted 3 years and i only sharpen it once a month and thats when the cuts START to get worn,
if you say so and you like how your motor performs thats all that matters
but i did use the carbide bit and thot it was good(and it looked good like a diamond) but on a closer look it was not.

Did you Read the link that I posted. if you have not do not put a rebuttal about what i posted. learn to sharpen the bit and space it correctly it will always cut better. takes minimal time to do this and the job is always flawless. plus u can chip a diamond with out using it as heat and dust jacks them up
