Thinking of buying a comm lathe
Lately I've been thinking of buying a comm lathe. With 3 stock motors and a 19 turn modified to maintain, it just seems like it makes sense to learn to maintain them myself instead of continually paying the LHS to cut the comm and install/break-in brushes.
Thing is, I don't really know much about them. There seem to be a lot of lathes available from various companies. Are any really much better than the others? Also, what accessories will I need? For instance, will the standard carbide tip that seems to come with all of them suffice or will I need a diamond bit?
Finally, what sort of power supply will I need? My charger is a Quasar Pro so, it can't really power a motor on a lathe like some of the higher end charger/power supplies can.
Thanks for any help.
