    LOST MY MIND

    My wife took a trip to Hawaii with two girlfriends and I missed her so much, I went a little crazy.. I'm not sure how it happened, guess it was just one of those lonely nights and I lost control... I don't know if she will ever forgive me!

    Paul a serious question if you will, what made you see the need for a small lathe when i see you have a nova. ?

    As to the wife, well a trip to Hawaii is way more that a mini lathe so i dont think she will be saying anything but nice machine why do you need two.
    cheers

    Have heard good things about that Delta mini.

    You must not be doing to bad Paul...sending TLOYL to Hawaii & being able to purchase a $600 tool. Either you had the cash to do it or you'll wish you did.

    Well, on the plus side, if LOYL gets too mad at you, you've got a nice little lathe to help keep you warm at night while you're sleeping in the shop. So you've always got that working for you.

    Congrats...that's a great little lathe.

    Rob, some folks don't like to change jaws, so they get more than one chuck. Other folks don't like to change chucks, so they get more than one lathe. Seriously, I'd love to add a midi like this one to my arsenal. You can take it places (demos, turning on vacation, turning at a buddy's place), and there are times when it'd be nice to leave a piece on the big lathe while making a part for it on the small lathe. Hollow forms and finials are a great example of such a case.
