I was thinking about a lathe on craigslist, and I have a question for you turners out there
The other jet mini lathes run around $400 new on amazon. I figured this was a good deal, but I really don't know what something like this will do. I'm not going to be jumping into bowl turning or anything, but stuff up to 3-4" would be nice: pens, handles, small toy parts, salt/pepper shakers, etc. Will this do what I want to do well, or is it something I'll want to replace as soon as I learn how to use it?
