At the Grizzly tent sale, I picked up the G0624 Mini Lathe for $65. It was missing a couple tail stock parts. Took the lathe inside and they identified the parts. $25 later I have a lathe that works absolutely perfectly for a total of $90. This is the exact lathe I was hoping for. Cast iron, benchtop, small, variable speed, etc.
In non-turner’s terms, I see the Griz has some black pegs, but the chuck looks smaller. The Barracuda looks larger, but doesn’t have the pegs.
Between theses sets (or others you may be aware of) can you advise me on a direction?
I’d like to start turning small bowls.
