Don’t hold your breath, It will probably end up in a mm. Rose Engine kits are available for 3,4-5 figure prices and I believe at least one person is taking orders for compleet machines in the low 6 figure range. One can build their own as well. The internet can show you examples of people who have and are building now. Ornamental turning is not limited to Rose Engine work and Indexed work can be done with some existing wood lathes. An inexpensive indexing plate added to the spindle before threading on a chuck or faceplate will provide a starting place for others. From my knowledge standpoint nearly all Ornamntal work is very dependent on specilized equipment and as little of it is curently available and affordable, Anyone interested in persuing these lines should plan on building as much as they can.
