Hi, newbie here and a G0768 is what I am considering pretty strong to buy soon. Still seems there is not a lot of info on it as I have been looking on and off for a week plus now.I have the G0768 and use it quite a bit. The lack of reviews is self-perpetuating as this thread shows.
The lathe is made by Weiss as the VM210 variable speed model. Of course everyone puts their own label on it so you have to be resourceful to find relevant info but it is quite widely used (just not so much in the US). I can't post links yet but if you search "AMA210VG Lathe 8x16" you'll get just one example.
I'll also point out the PM1033V people are recommending is the Weiss VM250. A bigger brother to the G0768.
I gather you are no longer considering the G0768 but if you are then I'm happy to answer questions from first hand use.
Since it has been almost three years - Do you still have the lathe and what would you advise about it now?
