my turn...it seems that buying anything in this hobby is a HUGE pain, especially when it comes to necessary items. I've read through this thread twice and still haven't come to a solid decision. Even though I've only been in this hobby for 7 months, I want to start purchasing LONG-TERM items the 'first-time'.
Any help with this is appreciated
Here's the list I'm choosing from....
FAN62625- Fantom comm lathe
diamond bit & slave motor includ. $364.95
101404- Hudy multipack lathe. HSG
slave motor includ. (no bit!) $234.95
101401- Hudy tech comm lathe. MODIFIED. HSG
slave motor includ. (no bit!) $199.95
C22340- Integy auto super lathe

X-MODLATHE2- Integy Xipp X-mod lathe

Well there it is; all I'm trying to do is get the most value for MY MONEY. Sorry the list is sooo long but, well, you know......
