GordonB I wouldn’t recommend the Shopsmith in expanding to woodturning. If your doing extensive woodturning or turning big bowls I would recommend a Powermatic or Robust. Otherwise your money would be better spent on having a machinist make the necessary collet driven parts to hook up a Nova, make 4” and 6” faceplates. The Shopsmith is a decent spindle maker, but is 1/2 the weight of the Supershop. I can’t imagine that would cost you more $300 for machining. In fact I will have what I suggested done and post in the near future with my cost.
