    I will leave this to the serious turners. But the first one looks like a Walker Turner.

    Both look like spindle lathes to me. To light weight literally and construction wise to turn any big bowl blanks. The last one is worth the price probably if you just want to do spindle work. If your wanting to turn big blanks, I would keep looking probably.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    I agree with Jeff. I wouldn't pay that kind of money for either of them. Neither one of them could handle a large bowl blank at all. IMO there are a lot better lathes out there. A Jet 1220 or a Rikon would be better and could turn a 12" bowl.
