I would like to buy a small lathe. I want to try and make, in particular, a stationary steam engine. I came across this lathe from an enthusiasts site, and wondered what the very experienced modellers on this NG thought of it.The price is about right for me. I'm not sure about accuracy and tolerances. I have had a little experience of operating a lathe many years ago and it's something I would like to do.
Can anyone advise me. If this is not worth the money, what alternatives could anyone recomend, or point me to a site where advise is availalbe.
Thank you. Peter
