    Hi chaps
    any recommendations on a good cnc lathe, I have been pulling my hair out over this. I have a boxford mt2 which I have converted to mach3 and its ok. I am looking for something with 25mm spindle bore and auto tool changer. A no nonsense lathe that will do what it's told and do it well

    cheers chaps

    He's in the process of buying a larger lathe. So assuming that goes ok it should be available in about two to three weeks, maybe sooner.
