Do not really know what you want to turn but might look at swiveling headstock to save few bucks. Can tell you Rikon 1642 manual same as Jet. They go on sale at WoodCraft couple times a year. Not sure of other vendors but guess there are.

20”x37” EVS LATHE

16” X 42” EVA LATHE

If do not like swiveling headstocks: 20” x 36”

Price wise competitive with both Jet & Powermatic.
