I bought one of the "inexpensive" combo mill/lathe from harbor freight. Don't waste you money on it. Buy the best you can afford.

I have an old 820 Logan 10x24, my buddy has an Enco 12x36. It wasn't so much the swing that he utilizes it most for but the length. He said his next will be bare minimum 13x40, again not for the swing but sure would've made life easier spinning them .50 cal barrels. Another advantage the larger swing lathes can have is a larger through hole in the headstock?
