Avoid cheep off shore junk and worn out used equipment, you just won't be happy with the results. If you'r a serious builder and expect to have quite a bit of lathe & milling machine work on this and future projects, check out what Smithy co. has to offer with there 3 in 1 (lathe/mill/drill) machines. They start at around $1,000 and go up from there depending on size and ability and extend all the way to cnc machines. 1-800-476-4849 Free Catalog.. You really need to check them out before you buy. I did and was impressed with what they had to offer but for my limited budget and amount of expected useage just couldn't justify the expense. Instead I found a local mom & pop machine shop that's hot rod friendly and treats me right. Good looking project!!
