It's a bit of a drive, but we have all of those lathes set up at my makerspace. If you'd like to try them, come over to Columbus. And bring some of that cold XXX Root Beer!

XXX RootBeer is indeed good!
I called about a lathe I saw on Craigslist yesterday. Itís the Delta 46-250 model. It only has the 1/2 hp motor though and he was asking $300. I can probably get it for less but I think I should be able to find one with a 1 hp for same money.

I started out with a JET mini manual speed, moved up to the JET mini variable speed, and finally to the JET 1642 variable speed. Wish I had skipped the first two steps and saved some money. Couldn't be happier....... well maybe if someone gave me a big One Way.
