Very nice.
I just bought a Delta 46-460 lathe. My first lathe and I am really enjoying it.

Mines a Sherline, intended for doing small detailed metal work. It has its original 18” base on now but I have a 24” replacement on my bench waiting to take its place very soon. Sometimes I found the tailstock got in the way of working the inside. Shallow plates and saucers were fine but as I started working on taller vessels it became more of an issue for me.

I think I will invest in a real wood turning lathe later this year so I can start making larger pieces

What made you deciude to go with the Delta? ... I have not really compared any yet

Beautifully executed! Simple yet complex. Very elegant.

I read a lot of good reviews on the delta. Watched a lot of wood turning videos on utube to get an idea of what to look for. One of the guys I watched recently bought the delta. And gave it a very good review. I liked it’s V belt drive setup, the variable speed dial, forward and reversing function, which improves sanding. I’ve had it about a month and I love it.
