hi Derek

that is a good lathe had one of them as well. it has a good turning capacity over the bed as well as on the bowl extension. the upgrade from that is the variable speed isn't it.

Variable speed is the upgrade I referred to Dennis. As you can see I have the outboard bowl turning attachment fitted already.

Hi Derek -- Nice lathe, they seem to be very popular so you should be very happy with it. I can't remember who it was now but it was suggested on one of our demo days that if you are turning a large item on a 1MT spindle to put a dummy 1MT shaft into the headstock just to give it a little extra strength. One of the lads up at the club has one and the shaft broke on him after a few months, Record replaced it by return so very good service from them. No problems since it has to be said. -- Julian
