I have the Record CL3-48. The Record lathes are very good machines I have had mine for a couple of years and love it. I got mine for the long 48 inch bed one of the few lathes that are set up for long spindals which is what I needed.
From what I know about Dan's lathe it is a very good deal to get into turning.

If your lathe is still available, let me know where you live in WA, as I am just across the border in BC. I'd be able to pick it up (and afford it) in January sometime.
Eee me if you can.
Keep yourself together and don't hurt no-one.

You made me remember one thing about this lathe that isn't pointed out in any of the manuals . . .
If your into spindle work, this is the lathe for you. The rails for the headstock, tailstock and tool rest are thick wall pipe. If you want to extend or shorten the length of the lathe all you need to do is find a metal shop that will sell you stainless steel tubing of the length and diameter you desire. The same scenario with the legs buy longer or shorter tubes based on your prefered work height. It takes about 15-20 minutes to swap out the existing tubes.
I case your wondering: "With all this size flexibility why are you selling it?" It is limited to 9" diameter turnings. I have some larger pieces of maple I want to take a crack at. My calculations are that I can get a 14-16" round by 11" long pieces of maple. Too big for the Record.
