I'd be in your same boat too.
Some of the lathes cut in the different direction, all boils down to
what you're used to. Greasemonkeys with big fat fingers who
are used to a different lathe might just tell you that, as an
excuse for their inability to readapt.
Its just a tool, I am righthanded. Right hand operates the slide,
either hand on the bit-feed knob and lefthand for the powerswitch.
Not very awkward once you've cut a few comms.
(if you're anything like me, you'd have pulled out all your old motors and made them comms all nice & shiny before you went to bed again
