Turning Archive 2006
>I'm needing a second hand lathe to turn chair spindels. I am not a turner and don't need to do anything other than turn chair spindles. Any advice on makes or models? Minimum hp I should look for? I want to be able to use a duplicator with it also. I see lathes on ebay all of the time but I'm worried that I wouldn't be happy with one of the cheap import machines or the lightly powered older machines like the dunlop 101.06242. I really don't want or need a large lathe and would like the smallest size lathe that would do a good job.
Any and all advice is appreciated.
