Thank you very much for the warm welcome Mal. Both my cue lathes are the EXACT same, here's a pic of the one IN my dining room ( wife is super happy about that ), other is in garage with all my other equipment.

I know most don't have this option, but I use my cue lathe to turn all my squares to round, even my pen blanks, makes it real quick and easy. Messy but easy. Since this pic was taken, I've fabbed up a temporary dust collection so it's not so messy in the house.

I turn my blanks round between centers too but using a metal lathe. It gives me a better view of the pattern in wood and acrylic to pick which end of the blank to use. Welcome from Katy, TX.

Thanks for the photos, Lee !! . Looks like those are Taig lathes ... nice setup you have there. . Yes, I can tell it is your dining room and I full well know the feeling of your wife because I have taken over the kitchen table and some of the kitchen counter space !!!! . I do the rough turning outside though and I use a metal-working lathe for that.

I would like to make myself a router bracket like yours ... thanks for showing.

Yes, the cue lathes are just Taig based lathes, nothing special except a longer bed and a bigger hole through headstock. I'd sure love to have me about a 36" or 40" metal lathe.
