Well I’ve been away for awhile…I come back and there is another sweet thread started that I just HAVE to follow! Thanks for this one Terry!

I don’t know jack about lathes, other than I want one. My dad bought one a few years back and if I recall he loved turning, but for some reason didn’t like the lathe that he got. Something about it being too small and that he had problems with vibration? I’ll have to ask him about it again, maybe it would save someone here from a bad purchase…or maybe someone here can explain what he’s doing wrong!

Until such day that I get a lathe, I’ll just keep on dreaming about this guy:

Damn that Roy Underhill for “turning” me on to the Barnes lathe…
