I need to rent or purchase a reasonably priced record lathe to cut short run vinyl LPs. Advice/contact info needed.

I have an art collective project that does interviews with artists. We have an exhibition coming up at a major midwest art museum. We have a small budget, but not enough to run out and buy a Neumann record lathe.
I'm looking for an inexpensive (Under $1K if possible) purchase solution or to rent one for a few months. Even a few days would work. The problem is the equipment needs to be on site, the fabrication is a performative element of the process.
I am happy to do the Peter King/King records thing and etc into plexiglass.
I would rather not buy one of the record recorders from the 40's that etches into wax coated steel, I've messed around with those and they are fairly impossible to use in a consistent way.
Google has yielded little reliable info, can anyone help?
