Well good news and bad news......   

The good news is Woodstock INT is going to stand behind their product and take it back.   

The BAD news...   I'm going to be without a lathe for a little while.   I have 1500.00  to put towards a new lathe but I think I want to go the powermatic route, or something similar.   20" swing would be great.   I don't need a 43" bed -  I'd be happy with a 32" bed like the powermatic.

Any Ideas?   It may be a while -  I need to save money, and it will cut into my Saw Stop purchase.

Josh

look at the nova  1624 lathe
i have one. it replaced a jet 1442 that's another story
if you do get a new lathe  stay away from a reeves drive unit because they are very high maintenance lathes
also buy what you can afford but be care full of what you get

Just ordered my new Powermatic from Woodcraft St. Louis today.   I put 1,000 on it and told him to take his time,  -this way I can slowly pay for it...   Now the painful waiting.

I'm excited! Smiley
