I have made the decision, based on careful research and frustration, to sell my lathe for a larger machine.
My hopes are for a 9x30ish nice used lathe. I told my parents this, and they said as long as it fits in my designated work area, its fine. But i Just dont think they fully realize the size between a 7x12 and a 9x30 or even 36. Does anybody have any idea of how I can prepare them for this?
