looks very well robust

the motor on that is large


Brent English (owner) makes a great lathe, The American Beauty has been
my dream lathe since I saw S/N 2 at the Portland Symposium years ago

I learned of it only recently. I have a General 160 that I power through
a jack shaft for lower speeds and it seems to be causing problems with
excess vibration.
I'd like to upgrade to one in the Robust/Oneway class. The Laguna
appears to be a good but less expensive alternative.

Laguna are made by the Burt Group (China), the same group that makes
Grizzly, Harbor Freight, Busy Bee, Master Craft and many other "import"
brands

anything is possible and it does say designed here but it does not
say where it is made

and if it was made in united states they would say that since it is
a selling point

the revo is one third price of the robust sweet sixteen but i think
it is more than half as good as the robust

the price of the robust puts it out of reach of a lot of folks and
it seems that grizzly is capturing a fair share of the market these
days

if i were choosing i would choose the revo

The Revo is probably made by this Chinese company:
