Good morning all,
I’ve been hunting for a new lathe for awhile and I’m debating between the PM45, PM90, and the older Rockwell Delta heavy duty versions such as the 46-614. The Deltas generally seem to go quite a bit cheaper than the PM90. The PM45 is about the same price as the Delta heavy duty versions.
I’d be interested in hearing anyones’s thoughts about the older HD Deltas or Rockwell/Deltas versus the Powermatics. They all seem to have been targeted towards light industry or school woodshops.
Also, by “older” I’m referring to roughly late 1950’s to early 1970’s vintage.
Thanks for your help.
