- Delta 46-460 12-1/2" Variable-Speed Mini/Midi Lathe with optional stand
- Brand: Delta | Category: Lathes
I bought this lathe last February. Since then I have turned a bunch of pens and a few bowls/vessels.
The lathe is great. I haven’t had any trouble with it bogging down. The reverse is big plus when it come to finishing.
The variable speed is a must have.
I have a couple of chucks to go with it (Nova G3 & Nova 2) which makes for versatility. I have the lathe on the stand also sold by Delta fitted with Rockler Workbench Casters which make moving it around the garage when not in use a breeze.
I have not need the bed extension yet but I wouldn’t hesitate buying in when needed.
This is my first lathe but I have used a Jet and a Rixon in the same class. I highly recommend the Delta over the other two.
