Who hollows with laser rigs?

Bill Grumbine, Kutztown PA
>Greetings all

I am sitting here at my desk surfing a bit and looking at laser hollowing rigs. I have some discretionary money burning a hole in my pocket, and I am trying to make up my mind if one of these things is really worth it. I do not turn a lot of hollow forms, but when I do, they sell. So I got to thinking, if I had one of these things, would it make turning hollow forms faster/easier/more enjoyable?

If I would go this route, I would need to do a combination of buy and build. I do not have THAT much money lying around! For example, the price of the Oneway rig is outrageous. More in line with my budget is the Jamesion handle Packard sells, although I would need to procure the laser and associated parts.

I am looking forward to hearing some opinions and experiences.

Bill
