So if anyone is following along, my decision is to go with the Weiss. The 10x30 Weiss is the same machine that Precision Matthews sells as the PM1030V.

I found a supplier in California that will be getting magnetic DRO's installed directly from Weiss and providing the combo at a price I can live with. I just have to limp mine along until March otherwise I can purchase it all and install the DRO myself which looks like a long drawn out PITA since I don't have a mill to adapt some of the brackets appropriately.

It'll be so nice to have a big lathe with a real professional DRO and proper stand. I can't wait.
