Lathe Colours

>Hello All,

During a recent thread about the new Silverdrive range of lathes, one of the points raised was that of the colour of the lathe, in this case a red maroon.

Although the colour of the lathe has no bearing on a lathes performance, cosmetically it could impact on the turner. When my Powermatic arrived in the UK I was dissapointed, it was painted white, the colour chosen by Axminster the British importer and not the mustard colour seen in the US.

If any of you had the choice to change the colour of your lathe what would it be and why?

Regards....Mike Swain RPT
