Nice is it a 1/2 or 3/4 hp?

I have the newer Craftsman 1/2 hp lathe and I like it, especially compared to the old Craftsman I had prior.

Hard to tell from the pics, but are you turning the inside of the bowl first?

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

well a little of both lol
i turned the outside first and it was still a little wobbley so i turned it around to hollow it out and make it lighter then im gonna reverse it again and finish the bottom
it is the shape i want on the outside but still needs some fine tuning
i have nerer turned something this big before so i was a bit lost
and my lathe is not bolted down yet either so its not as solid as it will be
any help is very much appreciated
Robert

Congrats on the new toy. Which Delta model is this? It looks great. Looking forward to seeing the final pics of the bowl.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

The Delta 46-460 is 1 hp...
It's a beauty... I got mine bout a month ago. Paid full price.
Couple days ago I saw Woodcraft had it on sale almost 90 bucks cheaper. They gave me the credit...
Good guys at woodcraft...

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!
