This is just my $.02, so don't take it for anything more than that. I'm on my 4th lathe, and finally have something I will be happy with for a long time. I started small, and outgrew it almost immediately... twice. I understand space and budget constraints, but take your time and get something you will be happy with. It's worth it. The joy should be in the projects you make, not getting a machine to do something it was never intended to do.
