>Not the Vega 2400, but the Vega 24. Anybody ever use this lathe (only $600)? Here is a link:
The motor is only 3/4 hp - doesn't seem strong enough to make use of the max 24" swing! My mini has a 1hp motor and I feel like that is about right for it's 10" swing.
I'm tired of trying to shave just enough off of blanks to maximize my mini 10" swing but can't yet afford anything along the lines of a PM3520A. I could keep my mini for between centers and start swinging some bigger bowls and platters...thoughts??
