If you are learning an old south bend belt drive lathe is hard to beat. In most cases it will slip the flat belt before it wrecks your parts!!. A gearhead lathe shows no mercy. I love the the "Tic, Tic, Tic" of my 16" southbend. I have a LeBlond gearhead lathe at the machine shop but alot of times I take stuff to my farm shop and put it in my Southbend... just my preference.

Mine is a 16" southbend built in 1944!! Has a 4ft bed on it. I have a 10" 4 jaw chuck and can surface an 88 oliver flywheel in it. You can put small parts in a big lathe, but ya can't put big parts in a small one.....

I am a machinist and if I was going to buy a lathe I would go a little bigger because if u want to turn a bigger part u will have room to do that.
