I'm looking into purchasing a small metal working lathe for hobby use. Something around 8 to 10" swing over bed by 15 to 20" between centres (seems like a good size for a small machine).
I can easily get my hands on a Craftex brand lathe distributed by BusyBee tools (anybody have an opinion on them?), but I'm having a hard time finding other retailers that offer similar sized and priced machines in Canada. Shipping from retailers in the US seems too expensive (not including customs).
Would anybody have any good retailers and or brands to recommend that are easily available in Canada?
Thanks very much! Jon
