I would think long and hard about this. I had a vintage lathe for about a year or so, then bought a brand new one, both were from Delta. Honestly, I feel the new lathe is actually a better made machine than the old one. The old one had a 9” swing, and with the way it was made, I don’t think I would trust it with bigger (which translate into heavier) material.
