I couldn’t decide and I have 2 lathes. A big older General and a Jet mini, which I bought for you daughter because she’s a bit intimidated by the bigger machine. I actually find myself using the Jet more often when I’m doing shop things, particularly turning things like tool handles, handles for vices, etc. I bought both of them used from CL at a huge discount over new. The two of them probably cost about $700 and came with piles of tools and accessories.
