Can't speak for the Rigid lathe, but i have a Clark tube lathe with a 10" swing over bed 3/4 hp. on this lathe 10" bowl, 5" deep was about the max it could due. but it did turn around a 12" platter on out board. blank was about 13.5" round and 2.5" thick, seem to turn it OK. hope this helps and would like to see your first outboard turning form it.
