Thank you for the help!

Woodworking is my passion, I have just about every tool and machine there is- except for a lathe. Once I've made a rolling pin, salt shaker, baseball bat and a ton of chisel handles I dont need what do I do with it? Nothing I could make with a lathe would bring me any pleasure, its all gimmicky stuff. OK, bowls maybe would be useful, but I dont woodwork to make novelty Xmas gifts and I cant justify a lathe for 4 chair legs once in a blue moon. Tell me I am wrong. I'm tempted to buy one anyway just to try and prove myself wrong.

I'm looking for something to turn a 54-60 inch walking sticks. I don't want to break the bank either…what would you suggest??

AlWheelin says:

Thanks George, I am in the market and since I'm buying a lathe to turn small bowls, pens and maybe some wheels. I'll be going with the variable speed mini lathe to start out.

Richard Harris says:

You mention weight and bowl size a few times. I was wondering how you work out roughly how large you can turn, beyond physical swing limits? I guess I mean in terms of weight. As if you have a lathe where the headstock swing out, or another chuck on the outbound side, you can essentially go down to the floor in depth, but that would naturally be enourmous and likely very heavy depending on the material you were turning. Is there some sort of weight-to-horse-power equation ?

Nannette Battista says:

I made it myself. Just go to woodprix webpage if you'd like do the same

Federico Favrin says:

Sebastien Boucher says:
