Default fantom

i've heard from a few guys with fantoms and they love them, they are high dollar though! several poeple told me you can't get them right now. appearantly the company doing the machine work to mill the lathe structure decided they were doing it to cheap and wanted more $$$$$ for the work. i've heard they are not producing any new ones right now. the carry case that comes with those sure it sweet though

I have a Xipp Super Lather (layshaft type). I used a stock motor set to 0 degree timing (to spin in reverse). I run it off 4 cells at the track or from my cutom power supply from an old PC. It has both 12volt leads and 5 volt leads. I run my lathe off the 5 volt leads and it will run forever (unless I stop paying for my hydro)...
