I enjoy wood turning and it is time to put my old Craftsman lathe to rest and purchase a new one. This is where I need your help, what would you recommend? I am currently wanting to turn larger bowls and platters but time and time again I will need 32″ between centers. Given that I need 32″ between centers I have ruled out the custom bowl turner’s lathe.
I have just started my search and these are the lathes that have caught my attention. the Powermatic 135200, the Delta “?” has a similar lathe the model # has slipped my mind, Wood Teck., and the Oneway lathe. What do you think?
Thanks – MSD
