mill - lathe combo

I am now looking to buy a mill - lathe combo. I have seen what northern has in their big catalog and I am not too hapy. they have a pretty nice MINI lathe for $400 I would buy it if it was a combo. however the only combo machine they have is not anyware as good. it cost like $900. If you look at the combo even the end of the large screw is only supported on one end, it just looks poorly built. if it was like the mini lathe I would go for it.
Anyone have a combo machine that they would recomend??
I realy want a combo ,, oh yes I would like to stay under 1300 but I will look at anything if it is nice enough.

thanks THE hotbarrel

I was one click away from buying a mini lathe it was 7" over and 12" between center, with a bunch of extras price $369. oh well no hurry.
That's the bare minimum I'd go. IMO, better to go with an 8x14 or whatever that one is.

Don't go w/ the 7x10, it is actually a 7x8". :( Now that I know, I'm going to buy a 12" or 14" bed and swap it over.
