The best lathe right now IMHO is the Fantom lathe. They are a little pricey but it is well worth it.... It even comes with a pelican case to protect your investment....

I have the Orion lathe, it is great. It is very easy to setup, you do not need to put a pinion on the shaft, it has set screws on either end to hold the shaft in place. That makes it very easy to change the setup between different arms. It also comes with a slave motor, switch, wires, and of course a bit. All you need is a power source. Good price too, I got mine from my LHS for $130.
setscrews, that sure makes it easier to set up.

MARVI: yep, i know, hudy lathes are really expensive here, and to top it all, no bit comes with the lathe, so u have to buy a separate bit, ouch. anyway, tanx for the input, all i have to do now is look for an eagle lathe.
