Subject:
Jet VS Mini -- How Slow Can Yo Go ?

Brad Vietje
>I need a small lathe for craft shows and small stuff... Before I finish making up my mind, I thought I'd ask how slow the VS mini will go. The brochures all mention 500 rpm - something like 3000, but can it go slower, even with very little torque ?

I would prefer to sand slowly, so full-torque low RPM would be nice, but I could use low torque slow speed for applying finishes.

Any thoughts ?

Safe Spinning,
