The ML10 is actually smaller than an ML7 (smaller than a long bed mini lathe, in fact).

3 1/4" centre height and no gap.

Thanks Neil.

Coming from you, that's good enough for me so on the strength of your reply a ML7 it will be.

Sorted.

If you have chance of a Long Bed 7 it has a much deeper and more rigid bed casting than the standard length.

Yes, forget the 10. I ran a Speed 10 for 15 years.

Cute and well-made, but limiting. I don't miss it.

It also has a 3/4" instead of the 5/8" leadscrew and the Super7 apron and Carriage, which is are improvement on the original ML7 one.
