Hello folks. I just signed up with lumberjocks. I found this community looking for reviews on a HF lathe #34706 that I am considering buying. I want a wood lathe to add to my small hobby wood shop that I just started in the last 7-8 months. I’ve gathered a lot of information on this particular lathe from this band of merry woodworkers. Thank y’all very much. I think I’m gonna take the plunge tomorrow and just do it. Any last minute advice on what tools to pick up with it. Any add-ons that I should consider getting right off the bat. Maintenance products. I can’t say that I am totally green to lathes. I have worked in metal fabrication and welded all my life up until 10 years ago. I have worked in a machine shop as well. With mills and lathes. Just one minor difference. Metal vs. wood. Any one got any suggestions. Shoot em my way. I would appreciate any and all input that I can get. Thanks folks.

Have your say...
