Has anyone got, or has anyone used a wivamac 801vario? 
If so could you let me know what you think of it. I have heard conflicting reports about wivamac in general but the size and capacity of this lathe are Ideal for my tiny workshop However I don't want to splash the cash without getting a little info first All thought are welcome!

Hi Richard
I don't know about this machine but, after a little searching I did come across this comment...
"British Turner Allan Beecham who has been turning for 50 years said "the DB801 Vario bench top model was the best small lathe I have ever used".
There is a good write up on the Toolpost's website which can be found >> here << .
WivaMac Lathe Brochure DPF file downloadable >> here << .
Looks a good machine.
