    Big bowls anyone?

    If anyone’s interested, the local news paper had this add in this morning’s classifieds.
    LATHE: MEGA wood lathe Oliver No. 21. Will turn 8 ft. diameter! $250. Heavy-duty sander/grinder. 18" disk, 16" drum $75. (505) 867-2751

    I looked it up on owwm.com, it has a 96” swing

    one."

    Jim Young wins the thread.

    Man oh man, I wonder what sort of power that bad boy requires. Wish I was closer and had the space and power for it. Just so I could put an 8' bowl in my living room.

    I'd put it on my rooftop and all it a hot tub

    8'........... Man, that must have been a pattern lathe for the shipyards!

    Worth the $250 in scrap (heaven forbid!!) at least.

    Cheers!

    Not a lot of shipyards in Albuquerque, but there are other things done in the area that might be able to use a big pattern lathe.

    A deal like that is worth a couple days drive with a pick-up truck or rented U-Haul. Where would I put it? And where does one get blanks that large?
