I bought a cheepo one off E-bay last year its fun, but man do it make wood shavings,actually fun to stand there and watch,I made candle sticks and turned some bird feeders {looks like oil lantern}.I think it would be better to actually buy a metal lathe that way you could ust the lathe in both hobbys wood workin and old Fords.

like I said I think I would investigate a metal lathe you could turn metal plastic and wood with a metal lathe, But most wood lathe are limited to wood.

Long as the metal lathe would spin upwards of 2500 rpm should be no real problem, except for contamination. Would need a real good set of way wipers and way lube purge the carrage after each wood use.

But I'm Anal.

I could have probably gotten a decent Rockwell wood unit with some tooling for ~ $200. The curious dropped out about $50, I ran the bid to $125 ~ 150 before the winning bidder started to have choking issues, so I figure the most I would have paid would have been in the 200 range.

I really couldn't do the $125, I just couldn't let the winner get it for free. The Auctioneer thanked me. ... I do woodwork so I wasn't just being mean. If I got it eventually it would have been on E-Bay, not enough room.

There's Woodturning on DIY Sat night/ sun morn, Follows Woodworks.
