I second what Hotbarrel says about combo machines!!! You will be much better served by seperate machines. I have a Smithy that they no longer carry (itis now sold by Grizzly:G9729 Combo Lathe/Mill) and you have to take down your set up for your mill to use your lathe and vise a versa. the mill is belt driven but the lathe is gear driven. I should have shopped around and bought a good used machine.
