Ok gentlemans, I had my heart set on a PM1030V. We all know the 1030v's specs and no stand available coming in at just south of $2300 on fleabay. Cash in hand, ready to order. I need some spiritual guidance....... I know Matt over at QMT is legit! No worries there. But, there is a but. I happened upon this http://www.dropros.com/DRO_PROS_Weiss_Lathes.htm over at DRO PROS. The pic is not an accurate rep of what they will be getting on 11/15. The specs below their 10x30 are mostly accurate. It has a SEPERATE feed rod and 1100w of power (more than PM, I think if 1100w equates 1.5hp). I reserved a machine and stand. It is sold by Weiss. Sooo.....what are you guys' thoughts? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
