The Robust lathes are great but like you say very expensive. I got the old Rockwell I have now because I did also want something made in the US of A. It makes me sick to see that 99.9% of everything has gone to overseas. I do own my own house and have a nice shop and whatever I get I want to last 30+ years which things are not made to last that long anymore. I do have 220 going to my shop but don’t have any 220 outlets. I ran a 100 amp service off my my 200 amp main to the shop to make sure I would have room to grow. I get to the point where my head just spins and everyone has different thoughts and feel like pulling my hair out. Good luck Kreegan on getting your own place soon. I have been working on my old 1923 farm house for the last 10 years.
