I just upgraded this summer too. I had a PSI Turncrafter of some later model before the Turncrafter commander. I bought the Delta 460 from Amazon and didn't have to pay for shipping (worth looking into). A huge upgrade for finishing. It always seemed like the Turncrafter just couldn't go slow enough for applying CA. One other feature the 460 boasts is that it spins both directions. I've heard that is great for finishing larger items like bowls, but I haven't tried it yet, so I can't comment on that feature. It also runs much quieter than the Turncrafter, but that doesn't mean much when the DC right next to it is going. Good luck with whichever machine you choose!
