OK, I know Harbor Freight is cheap Chinese crap. But has anyone ever owned a Central Machinery lathe? They have a 12" x 33 3/8" 3/4 horse lathe with a pivoting head for turning bowls. The lathe is on sale right now for like $280. I thought it might be a good one to buy until I can afford a better lathe. You know, just to get my feet wet on a larger lathe. Right now all I have is a Jet 10" midi lathe with a bed extender. I would like to do some larger bowls and this would allow mw to do that without a lot of cash out of pocket. I would spend more but I am about to drop about $800 on a dust collector. Any input is appreciated.
