hello everyone, I’m new to the site and have been in woodworking/wood sales for the last 30 years. My specialty is using antique woods… longleaf pine, oak, chestnut or any different species that come through my business.

Currently looking for a lathe, one that has a dependable copying attachment with a minimum of 50” plus between centers. If anyone knows of one would appreciate the info. Tim Higgins

I have a Grizzly with a copy attachment. Works great but it’s only 40” between centers.

You don’t let us know where you are so pertinent info may not be what you get.

John C Campbell folk school sells its lathes at the end of the year. This year’s sale is over but, if you can wait that long, you might be able to get one next year.

Have your say...
