The Fantom lathe is one of the best, if not the best, lathes money can buy. Most of the top tuners and drivers use the lathe. The lathe is made of one solid piece of alum., which makes it much more accurate than other lathes on the market.

The lathes are in short supply due to the high demand. I beleive Fantom only makes a few production runs of the lathe each year. I would check with your LHS to see if they can get Fantom products.

I think they only produce 25 at a time when they have a production run. The only online company that I know of that sells their lathe is Stormer Hobbies.
Ask your local hobby shop to order one for you.That would be the quickest way to get one.
Yes the lathe is excellent in everyway many of your motor tuners use them.

There is one for sale! used on the swap and sale thread.
