I am looking at purchasing a combo metal lathe and in my searching I found this one for a decent price. I am still considering something like the Grizzly G0516 but I found a Proxxon version for about half the price. I have a link to it below. I have not been able to find any reviews on it except for the one in the amazon link. Any opinions on the Proxxon machine would be greatly appreciated!

If it helps at all, I am looking to do metals and plastics for 3D printer nozzles and other prototype parts for new printers. That is part of the reason that I am looking at a combo machine.

Thank you for your help!

The link you posted is only for the mill/drill head, and does not include the lathe, which would account for it being half the price.

Also, these two machines are very different in size. The Proxxon lathe weighs 28 lbs, the mill/drill head is 17 lbs, and the grizzly combo weighs 556 lbs.
