    I didn't know John Deere made lathes. Maybe it is just the color. Looks like a nice machine but I would need a bigger shop.

    Wow, and I could have one for only 10K! Cheap at half the price!

    Nice lathe, but I may as well wish for world peace!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Bart,

    You can have mine. Feeding it with big logs seems real job.

    I am going to get a flat rate box tomorrow morning.

    If you are going to do big, big stuff, look at the VB-36. It has 2-1/2" spindle, not the tiny 1-1/2". For me, setting up the 40 mm (over 1-1/2") tool rest post is a work out.
