Delta 46-460 Variable Speed Midi Lathe
Does anyone have one of these lathes can you give some input on what it really is able to do.
I'm getting convinced part of it is the cost & the fact I usually don't turn anything over 12" & the fact is my old Delta double duty lathe would do almost 11" but the lowest speed is 750 RPM which isn't much fun to start a bowl on. The current bowl started out as an 8" blank & was well rounded on the band-saw. The lathe & bench all 420 pounds of it shook real good at 750 RPM.
Another question does anyone have the bed extension & what does the lathe length measure over all. I'm hoping to use my current bench to mount the lathe to. I may not always need the length but it sure would be nice to have if needed.
