I just don’t get why folks want to get the small lathes. I have extreme space limitations and still would not go without a long bed. I got a 36” They will still do precision work with the proper colette and variable speed. And I can do whole table legs without stacking smaller sections (a lot of work, by the way). If you’re expecting to do anything more than pens I would opt for a long bed.
