just moved to canada from scotland and before i came here i had to sell my tools and lathe etc. I was turning on an axminster lathe, floorstanding and doing mostly bowls etc up to about 12".
Thing is, now i'm here i want to start turning again, i want a new lathe and have a budget of $500-$1000 but i am struggling to find a supplier of a lathe.
i want a floor standing lathe, 3/4hp upwards and capable of outboard turning to do slightly bigger stuff from time to time. I like the jet lathes, almost identical to the axminster i had. I have looked at fox, grizzly, king jet etc etc and the stumbling block being that most companies advertising dont deliver to canada or if they do the shipping is ridiculous.. one company wanting $300.
so my question is... where can i get such a lathe in Canada????
