Nice is it a 1/2 or 3/4 hp?

I have the newer Craftsman 1/2 hp lathe and I like it, especially compared to the old Craftsman I had prior.

Hard to tell from the pics, but are you turning the inside of the bowl first?
well a little of both lol
i turned the outside first and it was still a little wobbley so i turned it around to hollow it out and make it lighter then im gonna reverse it again and finish the bottom
it is the shape i want on the outside but still needs some fine tuning
i have nerer turned something this big before so i was a bit lost
and my lathe is not bolted down yet either so its not as solid as it will be
any help is very much appreciated
Robert

The Delta 46-460 is 1 hp...
It's a beauty... I got mine bout a month ago. Paid full price.
Couple days ago I saw Woodcraft had it on sale almost 90 bucks cheaper. They gave me the credit...
Good guys at woodcraft...
