Enco 12×36 lathe. Dave the lathe came with a 6 3 jaw scroll chuck a 4 way tool post a live center which was missing by the time i picked up the lathe and a random drill chuck and big 2 shell mill which had fallen into the casting and i didnt know about until i got the lathe home. It is often used for making tooling where complete hardness is not required. Now that i got my birmingham ycl 1236gh 12×36 cnc lathe together i have no need for the removed parts i am tired of moving storing tripping over them.

I just went thru the 14×40 lathe selection process and can share with you what i found. Please note that this is not meant to be an all inclusive list of available lathes the specifications are what i found on web sites and via emails and the pro and con ratings are simply my opinion when i was trying to sort thru the options.
