    How to Select a Lathe

    I was the sad owner of a lathe like the one above.Because of the "bed", which consists of the relatively thin cylindric bars, it was very easy to end up with a lot of vibrations in the finishing part of a project, and a resulting "washboard" surface.So, unless you only want to turn small and undemandign projects, by all and any means get a lathe with a cast-iron solid bed for support.
