I am in the market for a flat bed CNC lathe. Does anyone have experence with the Bridgeport versions? What other brands should I look at? I would like one with a 15-20" swing.
The EZPATH 3 is what you are looking for. It has excellent iron that is made by ROMI. The control is reliable and support is available but not from Bridgeport. It has not been made for a few years.
My office reps MILLTRONICS who sells imported iron and a PC based control. A good amount of bang for the buck but do not take my word for it. Do your own research. Find people near you that have these machines.
