Complete nonsense, with reasonable care a metal lathe will not be damaged by cutting wood. I often see amateurs making goofy statements like that. As-metal cuttings are nasty, sharp and hot.

I totally agree…if wood dust hurts your metal lathe what exactly do you think metal dust is going to do to it?? Let me say it another way, if a little bit of wood dust hurts your “precision” metal lathe then how much respect does it deserve?? Gimme a break!!!!
