My desire to make bigger bowls and turn bigger projects got the best of me. I bought a new lathe to replace the 1942 model I was using. I bought a Steel City 60100G. It has a granite bed and head stock. 12" swing with 27" capacity, Variable speed.
I've only messed with it a little but I am happy so far. I need to build a stand for it (all my other work surfaces are too tall for it.)
