      I got my first lathe last summer, Rockwell Beaver 3400. Novelty of changing speeds manually wore off pretty quick. First I hooked up a jackshaft after reading some of your post Steve. Then I upgrade by going with a 2.4 hp dc motor from a treadmill. Works fantastic. But, I see those craftmasters and love their looks. Looking for a12 inch swing eventually so I'll hold out for a boat tail.

        good luck, the're pretty rare, nice machine though
        12 inches is tight!! especially with a chuck. faceplate will give 15 in the gap but adding a chuck puts the workpiece over the bed just like the 3400 but with 12 inch swing(barely)
        big advantage of the cm is the much bigger spindle, if you set it up for outboard turning you still have the 1 inch spindle and as much swing as you like. mine is 17 inches
