GP,
That statement is a tad Harsh.
One question for you...Have you ever heard of or ran a Lagun lathe, or for that matter a Republic/Lagun
same manufacturer for both, but South Bend controlled quality and electronics
I am waiting on the Digital EVS and am considering buying one.

Grizzly now has the rights to the south bend lathes Grizzly don't make anything they just private lable. As far as i know they are made in Brazil. I recommend you look for a good used one with hardened ways.

Out of curiosity I would like to learn more about SB super precision lathes. That I spend $28,000 for one for the garage is to over state it remote.

What does super precision mean? Are the designed in the USA? Where are they made. Is there a nearly identical lathe out there with a different badge on it?
