I am in need of a lathe and found a Sharp 1440 does anyone else out there have one or have used one? From what I have found online the 14" swing should be big enough, it is 3 phase but I will get a static converter now for it. Any ideas guys? The thing that I do not like is this guy is being wishy washy on the price and I can not get him to just give me a price. My attitude is if you want it out of the shop to make room and I need to provide the fork lift the price is going to be alot lower than I think he wants.
