Advice on purchasing a small lathe

07-11-2008 08:18 AM by EduWood | 9 comments »

My 16 year old son is interested in purchasing a small lathe. Though I’ve been woodworking since high school, I don’t have a lathe and have never used one. He’s interested in turning bowls, cups, pens, etc.. It would need to be a bench top size. Can anyone give advice on what to look for? Is horsepower important? What type of speeds should it have? Anyone had great luck with certain brands? He’s looked on the web and right now likes the small Grizzly, but the price seems a little high. Thanks to all who respond.
