Subject:
Inboard or Outboard bowl turning ?

Rich Pearson in Mill Creek, WA
>I am a new turner and have a Jet 1236 lathe. This lathe can swivel the head 90 degrees and , with the use of a banjo, allow me to work on the interior of the bowl without leaning over the lathe bed.

Should I learn to turn the interiors in the conventional position (inboard over the lathe bed) or should I learn to turn them outboard?

Pros and cons, please!
