Ok, I need the help of you experts. I have located a Shopsmith Mark 2 (bet you couldn’t have guessed that) for pretty low cost. I am mostly interested in it for the lathe and drill press functions. And especially the lathe. I am slightly hesitant to pull the trigger on it. I have read that it was the lower end model but I figure if it works, who can complain about a few 10 dollar bills for a functional tool.
Please give me a clue what you think. Good, bad, or otherwise. Should I pull the trigger?
I figure even if it is a half a$$ed lathe, it will get me turning until I have the cash for a decent one.
