Since I have a HF store really close by, might just have to take a peek and see if they have this in-stock there. For those of you that did pick up this one (or one similar to it), did you also get an other HF lathe accessories (i.e. live center, tools, chucks, etc.)? What all do you really need to be able to start "turning" some parts like pens, peppermills, etc.?
Also, what about the 12'' x 33-3/8'' Wood Lathe with Reversible Head (#3470) that is only $40 more? Of course it is bigger, but also has a 3/4 HP motor, 10 speeds, is reversible and is about 100# heavier. Any comments on this one?
Live a life worth celebrating!
