This summer, I moved from the East Mountain Area near Albuquerque, NM up to Taos, NM to be near family and the Grand Babies.
Tragedy struck during the move and my 1940’s vintage American wood lathe was dropped and shattered (mostly cast iron) into a million pieces.
So I am looking for a replacement: 4′ to 6′ between centers, partial to the old Oliver, Powermatic, etc heavy machines.
I have wondered about the new Oliver 2018 lathe…. I know it’s a Tawain/China manufacturer, but it looks like it is a decent machine. Anyone here have any experience with this model?
I have been with fine working since the 1970’s but I am a newbie to this forum. So apologies if I am treading on old discussion here.
Thanks for your thoughts or suggestions.
