Default Where to get Team Orion Quick Set Lathe

Does anyone know of any hobby stores with this item in stock, or anyone that might want to sell one?

I just searched the net over and every online hobby shop was out of stock. The only place I could find one was eBay, and a real good price.

Rick, if Orion has them in stock then why won't they ship some to the dist? I checked them all and they all show backorder. I would love to buy this through my local hobby shop but was forced to go through eBay. I checked Team Orion's web site and it said their online store is closed.

It is more complicated than that. Sometimes a distributors shows something as "on backorder" even if they have no ordered any.

I think we are agree it's a kick ass lathe, only problem is you can't find it anywhere. Let's hope the one I bought on eBay actually shows...
