Thinking about turning
We are snowbirds. I have a nice enough shop at our place in VT, but not enough room for a shop here in Florida. I don't (won"t) play golf, and so I spend a lot of time in the Winter planning projects for next Spring.
I have enough room in my garage for a lathe and a tool sharpening station, and I'm thinking about that despite having zero experience. I would want a decent lathe capable of small to medium bowls, table legs, etc. and easy speed changes, but I am reluctant to spend a ton of money at this stage.
The Grizzly GO462 looks like a possibility; I hope someone can comment on that unit and perhaps suggest some others to look at.
The optimist says the glass is half full.
The pessimist says it's half empty.
I say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
