lol... the first bowl blank I put on my 1624 I put it on a faceplate and, having no idea what speeds meant what, and having never read a directions manual in my life, I thought that because it was a bigger lathe it could handle the highest speed! I dont think ive ever seen a lathe dance like that since.Then it threw a 20lb blank THROUGH the wall. Thus my lathe is neither man nor woman, but a blessed piece of excriment
