Frank I have turned on the 46-460. It is a sweet lathe with some really nice features. If it had been out when I bought my Jet 1220 I would have bought it instead.
When I had trouble with my Jet it was either pay $95 to ship it to be fixed or fix it myself. So IMHO I don't see any difference in owning the Jet or the Delta.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
