There are occasions when we want to purchase an item that it would be good to have a comparison of products to aid our decision making process. Recently a member wanted to compare mini lathes and produced a spreadsheet which can be viewed here .

However just comparing the specs could lead to the wrong decision. Quality and fit for purpose are very important when it comes to choosing gear so you need to do some homework before final commitment.
