First I have done a search on this subject and haven't found what I am looking for. I want to take my hobby tinkering to the next level. It is time for a lathe. Studying the subject, I have decided a good used lathe is the way I want to go. I have watched many how to videos on operation, but can't find any videos on how to judge used lathe quality. I am hoping someone knows of such a video or is willing to post one here or on YouTube. I have already missed two opportunities on what seemed to be great deals, but I just couldn't take the risk of buying a lemon.
