Hey All . . . as the subject line says . . . I’m looking for my first lathe and lathe accessories.
I don’t believe that I will ever be turning large stuff, so I will not be considering a floor model.
I saw a Delta a month or so ago at Rideout’s (when I was not looking for one) and it looked about the right size. I think it may have been this one – http://www.portercable.com/Products/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=19220. I am open to other brands and models . . . I’m just not looking for something to expensive or to big.
I’m also gonna need some accessories. With all the bits and pieces at the LV I’m not sure what to get, or what I need. I think I’m going to be interested in turning pens though. Any suggestions would be great.
Please keep in mind that I’m in Canada and sometime us folk north of the 49 can’t get the deals our American cousins can.
I have tried our version of craigs list and the classifieds, but people want to much $$ for what they are selling.
Anyhoo . . . any direction or thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
