I am in the process of purchasing a new wood lathe and looking at the Laguna Revo 20 x 36 and the Harvey T-50, Both have the same specs, and seem to be from the same factory in China, but the Harvey is half the price. Does anyone own or seen either lathe. Looking for peoples opinion.

If they are from the same factory (I'm assuming you've confirmed this with the companies in question) then the price difference could reflect the quality of the components (motor, electronics, switchgear) or even the quality control and attention to finish. I haven't seen either of the lathes in the flesh this is just a general observation of machines that are attributed to the same factory.

Cheers
