Comm Lathes

Looking for opinions on what comm lathes are good for someone on a tight budget, Ive heard alot about how cheaper ones arent as "true" as the better ones, or can cone the comm, and i know the Hudy lathes are good, but just to exspensive, so hopefully someone hear can point me in the right direction!

I have the Cobra Lathe. It seems to be pretty nice. The comm doesnt cone on mine. You have to adjust the guides on the lathe to get a "true" round comm which is the case on every lathe. I'm in a simalar position as you....
