    Record Power is an English company that has been making power equipment for a while. They are sold here in the US by several of the more prominent woodworking suppliers, including Highland Woodworking and Woodcraft.

    From my quick look, it appears that their tools have a 5 year warranty. Here is the page Highland Woodworking has on their website for this lathe. https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/record-power-envoy-16in-15hp-vs-lathe.aspx

    With boxing day coming up soon you might find a good deal on a revo 1836. Also doesnt hurt to call around. KMS tools started selling laguna stuff and their advertised/online prices aren't always the actual prices as Laguna has minimum allowed posted prices apparently.

    Not familiar with them, as in never turned on one. For me, I would want 220 volt for that size of motor. I do prefer the 3 speed range to the more standard 2 speed range.

    I haven't seen any of the Coronet lathes in person, and certainly haven't used one. But I did peruse their features on line and thought them worthy of consideration. Is there any where you can see one in person?

    Michael Gibson won a Record Power 14x20 lathe for our club in a woodturning contest sponsored by Record Power. I've turned on it several times during our workshops prior to the Corona Virus shutdown. It's a nice lathe. The controls are a little odd until you get used to them. Mike Peace did an extensive review of this lathe on Youtube.

    Hope this helps.

    I think will buy it, the 16x24, it fit my budget. Not a 2 hp but 1.5hp will be enough for my use. Looks better than Nova, shop fox or King. Everything is to expensive with Laguna; extension, lamp, etc, around here, the 18/36 is almost 4000$ Canadian.. Oneway in same size is 4200$ can, in that price range, i guess Oneway is the way to go.

    Power Record Envoy is about 2700$, same design as jet,looks like it.
