>This is addressed to the "average", home/garage, hobbist turner.
What size bandsaw are most of you guys using?
My major interest is Windsor chair spindle turning,I suspect any 14" 1 1/2hp would do.
However,I have attempted some green wood bowl turning. Hollow forms and segmented turning looks interesting also.
I have cut one set of bowl blanks with a small electric chain saw and a chop saw (not very pretty)
Lathe is entry-level Jet 1442 1HP, 14" over bed with a swivel headstock.
I suspect my limit would be vessels 5-7" diameter
While we all would like a 20" Minimax, that just isn't going to happen.
What say you gentlemen?
