Default New machine.

Well after Brad G got his new lathe I said mine would be the Grizzly 13 x 40. Well that was way to big for my shop so I ended up with the next model down. The G4003G. Haven't got it out of the crate yet as I have to sell my old one first.
Anyone wanna buy a lathe in BC.

Congrats on the new toy. I have the same model that I bought 8 or 9 years ago although I don't have a lot of time on it. You'll love it.

Thanks everyone, just trying the one out in the store was amazing at how much more precise it is over my older lathe. Oh and I have a guy coming to look at my old one in the morning. Fingers crossed.
