Dave,

Quite a few similar posts to this recently. Perhaps give the ‘advanced search’ option a go and come back with Any specifics?

Also, other key advice is to visit an awgb club.

SVB do a search on turning clubs near to where you live and go and talk to the people there. You will probably be able to look at a couple of bits of machinery and see what suits you.

By the way, welcome to the slippery slope of turning. Once on the slope you will enjoy the ride :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Don't buy one of those clarke, lumberjack, aldi woodzone, sip, draper etc lathes. They are all variations on the same piece of dung. Search for lumberjack lathe, costing around £140, to see a pic of what I mean.
