orion may have been able to lower the speed by using different size pulleys to slow the arm down for cutting. 19turn is usually too fast a motor. i am not familar with that lathe so i dont know for sure.
if you go with the integy, do not get the mod fashion. get the X mod super lathe. i think this version came out this year. i have the earlier version X mod lathe that looks like a hudy tech lathe. it shows no wear after four years.
the lathes will cut those arms. as long as the motor is the rebuildable type you can cut the arm.
you also want V-blocks and not bearings.

V vs B


FROM HUDY(the masters of tools)
What is better, ball-bearing guides or V guides?

This is a very common question on every discussion board. To bring the light into this problem, please note that the ball-bearing guides system was invented and designed by Hudy company. The ball-bearing system (which is now very popular with other companies as well) is not a new system but have been used by Hudy for several years already, so Hudy company has the best experience to compare both systems.

So where is the difference? There is no difference between Hudy ball-bearing guides and Hudy ultra-hardened steel "V" guides; this has been confirmed by hundreds of experiences testing both systems on Hudy comm lathes only. Any other guides by other companies may not meet with strict Hudy factory production standards and these non-Hudy guides may be very different in quality.

After many hundreds of hours of testing, our engineers have determined that there is no real difference between ball-bearing guides and ultra-hardened steel "V" guides. Stands with both systems include plastic clips that apply pressure on the armature in the guides and this feature is very important - that the shaft is firmly held and there are no vibrations.
The choice really depends on your taste.

That is a really nice power supply!!!! Might be a bit expensive though. I still cannot decide what lathe and ps to buy though. I am leaning towards Integy since I have not hear anything bad about them.

I have the Integy Auto Super Lathe. Works very well. I HAD an Integy power supply. It was garbage. The Pro Peak power supply is great for the money. Someone else had posted another similar in price with the same specs but maybe a little smaller. That looked nice too. I dont think you would go wrong with that combo.

Does that combo look good? You said the Integy power supply was garbage though. This is a combo a lot of people had at my track today.

This is the one I use and run three LRP Pulsars off of it as well as a smart tray. I have run the lathe on one charger and was charging on the other two with no issues at all. It has a fan in it as well. http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=search This is the same power supply that Competition Electronics sells and I believe they sell if for almost $40 more. They are relabled Samlex power supplies.

The Integy will work but it is expesive for the amps you get and mine bit it on the second use. I got the pro peak and havent had a problem since (and it was $30 less).

I run a Johnson 540 motor (similar to a Mabachi) on my Team Cobra lathe ( Diamond the only way to go) and power it from a computer power supply (cost $2). I then made a voltage regulator cicuit (that connects to the computer power supply) which allows me to vary the voltage from 4v to 9.6v. This cost me $7 in parts . I put all this circuit in an old computer power supply. This voltage regulator cicuit also powers my tyre warmers and can be varied. The computer power supply 12v also powers fans to cool my car and batteries when charging. So for less than $10 I can power my lathe, vary the voltage to my tyre warmers, power 3 fans and also run in my motors when I put in new brushes. Unless you need a 20 amp power supply investigate some alternatives. Its much cheaper
