I agree with the comments about run out on a wood lathe. I use a Shopsmith 5XX for a wood lathe and there is very little run out.

I recently turned a bowl on my old Shopsmith 10ER. I was impressed with the way the Shopsmith operated as a lathe. Mine has very little runout as well. I have a speed changer on mine so that I can get the rpms down to, according to the specs, about 425rpm.
