Subject:
Legacy Mill or traditional lathe?

Brian Dz
>I am in the early stages of deciding which would be a better purchase, a Legacy Ornamental Mill or a regular lathe (brand undecided). The cost of the mill is quite a bit higher than a lathe but the assorted knives for the lathe I feel will balance that argument out. I haven't done any turning before but that doesn't mean I won't ever incorporate it into anything I haven't made before. It just seems like the next logical progression.
Let me hear your thoughts and opinions. I would like to hear pros AND cons to both sides since I know there are owners out there of both sides.
I look forward to your info and opinions! Thanks!!
