The focus of my shop is mostly wood working with an emphasis on furniture and my space is very small. I wanted to add a metal lathe but with my limited space my options were limited. I ended up with a 6"x18" atlas that I found on cl for $150. It came with both a 3 jaw and a 4 jaw chuck, a full compliment of gears, boatloads of tooling, just about every thing but a milling attachment. Its a later model with Timkin bearings. Its not a south bend or a clausing, but its not a bad little lathe. I will always be able to sell it for what I paid and it would be a good tool to learn on.
