Wood Lathe Listing
Comments (especially corrections) welcome. Any suggestions requiring me to go back through the entire list may or may not get acted on in a timely manner.
Wow, a lot of info there
May I suggest you add one piece of info?
I'd add if the lathe comes with a stand. My Nova DVR 3000 did not come with a stand, and thus looks VERY lightweight, compared to other lathes that do come with a heavy cast iron stand, but I do not know anyone with the Nova lathe, that has not build a stand of some sort, or bought the cast iron leg set that Nova now sells to bolt onto the DVR-XP and the 1624 lathes.
For example, the shipping weight of the Nova DVR-XP is just 200lbs, but the shipping weight of the JWL-1642EVS is 455 lbs.
The cast iron stand for the DVR-XP adds another 100lbs.
Just a thought

That is great Neal, good job. May I suggest you add reversing capability?

Thanks for the great job and appreciate the time you spent and going to spend on this list.
With all the suggestions, this may turn into a full time hobby. I want to say "job", but you are not being paid.
very good list and useful for basic specs at a glance........thanks
Very interesting list. I would suggest adding the date you last updated information. e.g. the Grizzly G0632 has just gone up $200.00 in price.
It's very minor and you may totally ignore me if you wish, but if this is a spreadsheet chart, you might want to do a "freeze pane" so your column headings stay in place... after they roll up, I run into a severe case of "out of sight - out of mind" or CRS (can't remember excrement) and have to keep going back up and down to see what a column heading is.. may be just me =

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
You will also want to add the new Grizzly G0694 lathe.
Great suggestions, and thanks folks! This has kinda been a labor of love compiled a little at a time over several weeks. I've never seen such a list and was hoping someone might find it useful.
I would like to have added things like weight w/legs, reverse, etc but it was discouraging how poor some of the manufacturer's websites were at offering such information. There were times I found myself digging through manuals just to find MT, spindle size, etc. I did the best I could with the info available. Perhaps one of these days I'll spin back through the list and see if I can glean that type of data.
Frank, thanks for the tip on the new Griz. I checked and don't see ANY info on-line yet. It must only be listed in their new catalog. I'll add it as soon as it is available.
If you (or anyone) are aware of something please let me know. The table-oriented view I did was a quick-and-dirty solution but not ideal. It auto-scales according to the user's browser width. Not the best solution for a wide table, especially as I add more columns.
