As Kenton says…Dashto has some good deals on lathes from time to time. Also try Uncle Larrys at http://www.execulink.com/~lfoord/tools.html
Maybe someone else up here knows of other good places to buy them.
If you’re not in too big a hurry good deals do come up on eBay. You have to keep checking and try to use different key word searches such as jewelers lathes, watchmakers lathes, watch lathes, clock lathes, clockmakers lathes, miniature lathes, mini lathes and any other variation you can think of. If you keep an eye up there you will probably get lucky. But you are right…prices are generally higher than when I did the videos but then again so is everything else!
If I hear of a good deal I’ll send you the info Ben,
