I sent off for the mini-lathe Fox F46-252.
YES i know its under powered and small but as i am not doing any large bowls and wont to get into pen turning i plumeted for this one.
Price £75 plus £10 pp.
I ordered it about 2pm yesterday and it arrived at 9 am the next day and Google maps said it was 5 hours away.
I have unpacked it and switched it on, very silent motor, all speeds work but as this is just a first day test have not turned any wood yet, got to bolt it down.
Well it will suit me as i am recovering from a operation, well two so cant lift much.
So far i recomend this lathe as a hobby lathe but will let you know how i get on.

Where did you get it from at that price? It looks like a good buy!

I see it on ebay, he only holds a small stock but sells drills mainly.
I have tried it out now have fastened it to the bench its great but i have only 2 chisels as when i had my big lathe a year ago i sold it as i did not think i would have the streinth to do any woodwork again, but a year later am getting back to small projects.
Funny the delivery man carried it to my shed but it took me and my wife to get it on to the bench.
