Wildwood offers some real good advice … figure out what you want to turn, then find a lathe that suits your needs.

If you want to turn pens and bottle stoppers, the 600rpm minimum speed on the HF 34706 isn’t much of a problem. If you plan to turn 10” or 12” natural edge bowls from rough unbalanced stock, 600rpm could be huge problem.
