I probably can’t give the best advice since I just recently puchased a lathe and don’t have much experience. I decided on the Delta 46-460. Although I’m interested in turning bowls and vessles, I have limited space in my shop and needed some mobilty. As mentioned earlier, I looked into turning accesories which can be a large investment on top of the price of a lathe. I chosethe Delta because of the 1HP motor, variable speed, and reversing capability for sanding.
