Re: What machines are you using? (CNC, lathes, mills, 3-in-1 machines?)

You're already a lot better off than a lot of teams. And I'm willing to bet those Southbend lathes may be better quality than some of the new import stuff. I really like LeBlond lathes.

I would never buy a 3 in 1 machine. All the ones I've seen are either really junky or quite impractical or both.

Do you have a welder? A Miller Synchrowave sure would be nice.

For CNC, I like HAAS.
