Chris,
Let me put it this way.

In a perfect world:
The English are in charge of the police
The Germans are in charge of the army
The Italians are in charge of love
The French are in charge of food
And the whole thing is run by the Swiss

All my life I heard about fine German craftsmanship and believed it until I bought a Volkswagon and later a Mercedes. After learning my lesson my wife and I both drive Toyota cars. The lesson I learned is to look at something based on its actual merits and not a cultural prejudice. I am not pro Chinese lathes but I bought one in spite of all of the bad press I heard about Chinese products. I took a chance and bought one and it turned out to be a great machine. When I saw a picture of the NANO lathe (which I think is Chinese) I inquired about it on the forum. Jan Gerene posted back and indicated that he was generally dissapointed with his. What I will advocate is use what works best for you and ignore designer labels.
