Hi all!!

I decided to do some DIY and needed a lathe, there is not much information about good machines, I need a mini lathe to fit comfortably in the garage,  https://reviewerst.com/woodworking/best-mini-and-midi-lathe/ then I found Shop Fox M1049 it is very multifunctional there are many clamps, everything suits me, but before buying I decided to ask question, maybe there is something better up to $ 1000

Ty for feedback

You might keep an eye out for used lathes. I bought my South Bend 9" for $400 with a bucket of tooling. I'd start on Marketplace or Craigslist.

Yes, but would be able to transport it in his canoe?

Not sure that's a canoe. He's made 5 posts over assorted threads. I figured I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

Good point. This post feels vaguely watercrafty, but some of the others I saw didn't really look that way.

Guys, the link is to a wood lathe.....

I've never found the correct welding rod for that stuff.

Are you a spammer? I'm pretty sure you're a spammer, but I saw you posting about a 626 in another thread, and there's no way a garden variety spammer would bring up 626s here unless you're the best algorithm ever or we're just that predictable.

You've got until tomorrow to convince me either way, then I'll nuke your account.

Hard to tell. 

The link is wood lathes. The Shop Fox is a 9" metal lathe. 

I can't decide if this is spam or just a language barrier problem.

I think the AI paddling these waters are getting better.
