OK, I have so many questions, and dont even think I have all the terms right…

What is the main difference from the Grizzly lathe that costs like $600 vs the Jet lathe at $1,400. Sorry I dont have the model #s, since I am at work, at need to be doing other stuff. It looks like the headstock rotates on the Grizzly and has more hp, digital readout…both come on cast iron stands. Lot of price difference between the two. I am not a “grizzly guy” per se, but I know they offer the bang for the buck…I really dont know crap about lathes, so I am just trying to take it all in. Also, is the rotating head stock a must or good feature? thanks for all the help.

Also, I think I saw a forum the other day that asked about book recommendations…anyone have some good books or videos that are a must?
