    What are you turning on?

    Was curious as to what lathe everyone is turning on?

    Sears (Craftsman) 15" x 38" and the little Wilton mini lathe in my shop. Both will be replaced eventually, but for now, they do the job, especially for the prices I paid for them.

    My neighbors dog is the only thing I have that spins around in a circle. I threw a piece of wood at him and all he did was eat it.
    Thanks, Mark.

    Some custom homebrew hack lathe made out of some serious angle iron. But, it came with a faceplate and a skew chisel for $15. Given that it spins, don't see any reason to acquire another one...yet.

    The one tool I regret getting rid of. I really miss the little Wilton I had. That was a lot of lathe for the price.

    Jet Mini

    I just got a Jet Mini today... No turning tools yet as I have to find a decent beginner set, mainly for bowls, and also a sharpening jig. I also have to put a stand together.
