Watch your fingers??????
Hello, I would just like to say i done the same thing as you, i wanted a better Lathe and up-graded to a Record Power, i also wanted to turn large bowls, this can be done with the out-rigger attachment that you fit to the lathe stand, then just turning the headstock to allow you to put upto a 30" blank on the lathe But if you do use this, be very carefull, as i found the larger the wood, the more you got vibration, so much that it took the Chisel out of my hand and left me with 6 stitches. I was told this is a sign of a good woodturner, but take it from me it's not. So be very carefull when you first use a large blank, it's nothing like turning a small bowl blank. I have been turning for a few years, and I am very carefull and thought it would never happen. Good Luck, don't take your eye of it for a second.
