I recently purchased a variable speed lathe, a Powermatic Model 3420B. This allows me to start learning how to turn bowls, a very fun part of woodworking. Previously, I only did spindle turnings (Windsor Chair legs and stretchers). I had a Vega 8 foot lathe that only had 2 speeds, 1700 and 3400 rpm. My wife likes my bowls but any decent woodturner would evaluate them as beginning level. I accept that and hope to get better as I turn.
