From time to time I see people post needing advice on buying a lathe has anyone checked out Baileigh Industries lathe selection. If I was in the market for one I sure would consider this one. Variable Speed Wood Lathe WL-1847VS. It is less expensive, more powerful and bigger than a comparable one from Jet. They also have a reasonable priced 12” lathe. I realize they are on sale, but they still beat the Jet prices. http://wood.baileighindustrial.com/woodworking/lathes?gclid=CNuquenbxbgCFTFgMgodyXQAPA Just an observation, If I had not purchased my Nova 1624 last spring I sure would really consider buy their offering. Does anyone on this forum own a Baileigh lathe?
