i'm pretty sure they are made in the same seig factory just different badges and colors. http://www.chesteruk.net/ also sell the lathe combo u have mentioned and a bit cheaper then machine mart will charge you for the combo. although a lot of people don't recommend combo machines for a few reasons such as sacrificing rigidity and the possibility that the milling attachment may be almost useless. also that lathe is very small u may be better of paying a little extra and buying the lathe and milling machine separately. this is what i am saving to do at the moment. http://www.arceurotrade.co.uk/ sell the x1 micro mill with the large table on is for £265 which is the most reasonable price for it i have seen. i believe this is the same milling head included on the clarke lathe but with a proper x/y table. and in this ebay shop http://stores.ebay.co.uk/harryuk123 u can buy a 7x14 (bigger and more usable then the clarke lathe) for £320. hope i have helped.
