Greetings from Australia.
Hi The only Mini Metal lathe
to buy is the UNIMAT. it is made in Austria.I have had one for years and love it. it has 1 downside, You can only use it for about 8 minutes before the motor
gets hot and you have to let it cool down. I use a small fan blowing on the motor
and I can use it for about 20minutes. They may have corrected this since i bought mine. You also have to remove the belt when letting it cool down or the belt will break.I had a TAIG but did not like it. Hope this info helps.
