Metal Lathe for Hobbyists: Buying Tips and Recommendations

Hi All,

I have been doing some light research on metal lathes for hobbyist / casual users. While I cannot say that I have any specific projects in mind at the moment that would make me want to buy a lathe, I am interested in reading any recommendations or tips from the forum members on what is a good basic set up or a '"starter" lathe. Any brand recommendations, or ones to avoid? Best bang for the buck? Realistic start up cost?

Thanks in advance,
