Turning

Re: Variable Speed?? *PIC*

I would just like to add that the Delta was a big step up from a Rockwell Beaver 3400.
I had already pushed that to the limit using a 1/4HP washing machine motor.
So tool usage and speed selection by changing pulleys were all thoroughly ingrained. So 1HP seemed to be all I would need. But the move up to a 3520B proved to be a far better step. Big HP motors have more torque and torque is what matters IMHO. I'd never stalled out the 3520B until I got into coring. Then it happened in a big way. But like everything else connected with turning there's a learning curve so the stalling wasn't a problem for very long. :)
Here's the old Rockwell coping with a chunk of wet sour cherry.
