Default 3 questions about Motor,batterie and motor lathe

Br00d batteries are very good. The CO27 is a better motor than the Monster no doubt. You can usually find a used Cobra Lathe for a good price. They work pretty good. make sure to ge the diamond but though.

The carbide bits work fine. they just wear out faster and do not cut the comm as nice as a diamond bit.

That is the one I have. I got mine used with slave motor and 2 new bits for 65 bucks. Then got the diamond bit off ebay for 45. Find one used, it will be much cheaper.

Mostly correct, though I have gotten cuts with carbide bits just as fine as with diamond, but I could only ever get about 20 cuts or so out of a carbide bit before it wore down & dulled, but I've had a diamond bit on my Cobra lathe for well over 6 years(& have literally done hundreds or even over a thousand cuts with it) & it still cuts as well as it did when brand new....
