In this thought exercise/potential reality, imagine that most everything else is absolutely the same like the drive train, the condition, the tooling, the price, etc...everything relevant is equal in this alternate reality and you're given the choice between a Clausing 4912 and a Logan 10 840...which would you go with and why? My instinctual visceral inclination is the Logan, even though I know that their rep can sometimes lean more towards mass produced hobby/toy than precision machine, they undoubtedly produced some quality lathes and at a glance, the 840 seems to be one of them. It simply looks more substantial than the Clausing, almost like a SB heavy 10 or something, that can at least be shimmed and adjusted back to true if it has twist or warp in the bed ways, vs the whole cabinet of the Clausing being one unit. That may be wildly inaccurate as I don't have any experience with either, but from my experience with machines of either 'style'...they both come very well equipped, but it seems that regarding accessories and parts Logan parts are harder to come by and Clausing's are quite expensive....Anyway, I am eager to hear any feedback that anyone with experience has, and as always, very grateful for this whole community! Thank you very much!
