Rigid 1/2 hp wood lathe
Hi! I am relatively new to wood working. To this point, the extent of my experience is a doll house for my girls, simple shelves, and some odds and ends repairs.
I have been interested in wood turning for quite some time, but have wanted to ease into the craft. I have been looking for a relatively inexpensive lathe and tool set to get my feet wet and ran across a Ridgid 1/2 hp wood lathe on CL for $150.00. It looks to be lightly used and I will get a chance to look at it next week. Is $150 a good buy and is this a good entry level lathe to turn small bowl, pens, and small handles?
