Turning Archive 2006
>Now that I am getting in to turning again, I once again get the sense my lathe is underpowered. I have a Delta, 12" variable speed where the variable speed part is controlled by turning a handle that then changes the diameter of one of the pulleys. If I recall, it has at most a one HP motor.
Given I have a little Christmas momeny, does anyone think it is worth upgrading this to say a two HP motor or do you think with this arrangement, I may not see any benefit due to belt slippage, etc.
