If it is a tube lathe you can do quite a bit of spindle turning with no problems.
For bowls, most have a low speed of 900 and some are even 1100 which is way to fast for most larger diameter work.
On the tube type there is a small runner which the tailstock aligns on and a serious out of balance can break the runner. I know.
