While lurking around on craigslist.
 
I was looking on craigslist for a lathe. And found one not far from me for a reasonable price. It is labled as a RE Tools wood turning lathe. And looks too be 1/2 hp. Has anyone here ever heard of this lathe? Or know anything about it?

Never heard of one of those. Be careful with the non name brand. the are probably rebranded chinese and may or may not be any good. If it's a full size lathe 1/2 horse is too little. If it's a mini lathe that's about right.
also don't by any of the lathes with angle iron beds. Those are junk.
