Big John,

The 1” x 8 spindle is a bonus as the Rikon is also 1” x 8. I am sure that a 1 1/4” spindle reduces vibration and will be more durable over time, especially with green, heavy blanks, etc. But, quick interchangeability is awfully nice. The 1” tool post is a bonus for the same reason – all my tool rests work on both lathes :)
