I just joined this forum so I can get in on this discussion. A lot of good info. I run a small shop producing turnings for local millwork projects. I make all my own hardwood blanks which are often 6" sq. I took a look at a 16" Original that looked good to me but I only tried a couple cuts with it. I am wondering what models would be good to look at if I want something that is 16"-20" and 3ph is available? Also, what problems to look out for.
Myk, I can't believe how good the AMF looks but I love most things old. We are building a new shop and it is going to be all galvanized siding with fir frame windows. Also our delivery truck is going to be a 1958 White 3000. Your avatar looks like it could be a tattoo...where did you put it?
