Started turning at 16….tuned on and off (mostly off) for50 years. I have a 50 year old cast iron lathe with a dead center and a drier motor with 4 step pulley. OK so now retired and want to move up. Read about the PSI lathe, Riken lathe(70-2200 THE Jet 1221 the delta 46-460. I need support stuff (sharpening stuff, tools, chuck etc. Like to turn bowls and candle sticks. Seems like in my research everyone seems to like the Delta. They like others but no one seems to complain about the delta. Seem like a reasonable choice? The PSI commander is less $, the Jet is more $. I believe the Delta is variable speed and reversible. Does my logic make sense? If so are some places a better bet to buy some? Look forward to feedback….. thanks guys (and dolls).
