That HF lathe has a 3/4 HP motor, are you saying that it isn't enough? If not, could be just that particular motor isn't all that good, not that 3/4 HP isn't enough. Also, can you explain more about what a "Reeve's Drive" is and what is not good about it? I have been looking to maybe get that HF 12" lathe, so am curious. Thanks!
