Hello all, been lurking for a while, so I thought I'd take the plunge and come and join you chaps (and chapesses!) I hope to be able to make a few contributions here maybe, and members permitting...learn a bit too! There looks to be a wealth of knowledge here!!
I am currently looking at buying my first lathe, but really restricted for space. So, looking at a Chester DB8? which seems to tick all the boxes? Initially a Warco WM180 was on the cards, but after comparing the spec, the Chester seems to be a smidgeon bigger....and with a little more power....
Really looking forward to making a start, and hopefully get involved soon.

Welcome Tifa. I have had a DB 10 for about 8 years now, and no problems with it. Go for it.

Altough I had "joined" some years ago, I had never taken the plunge to register my interest by placing "Posts".
I live near Newport, Shropshire, so feel a bit out in the blackwoods.
For several years I was resoring some WWII aircraft, have a useful range of machinery.
I am now looking to dispose of surplus tools and materials.
I have been in engineering most of my life - 16 years as an engineering instructor.
I have been a regular reader of MEW - and contributor.
Hope this will "pass" as an introduction.

Welcome aboard the forum.
You should really have started your own thread not hijacked Tifas
