I'm wondering if anyone has feedback on these lathes? Maybe someone can suggest a similar brand that they like in the 4-6k range.
i have 2 of the acra they are ok machines depends what model you get. got another one recently looks exactly same as my mazak manual lathe but different name from a guy machinetoolonline.com but bought as a package deal. i think i did ok. he swears that parts are much more available from him but dont know havent broke anything yet this year.
got one of the lighter 1440's from them too nice machine but swapped the motor out right away on it. hell of a time finding one to bolt in. didnt quit on me or nothing but wanted a baldor just because. not an acra but looks like it.
only thing is the mazak took forever to order in but was way worth the price. about 2/3rd of the last one i bought and lots more goodies.
