    Looks like a bowl machine. More or less designed just for that purpose.

      It looks sturdy enough to do some light weight spinning.

        I sure like my Oliver Metal Spinning lathe. Use it either way.

          Looks pretty cool but would have to BOLTED down big time. Sure would save space and save your back.

            Sorry it's a a very nice lathe but he's asking a lot of money for it. You can do much better that's a new price to me anyway.I would buy that machine used for around $5-6 hundred bucks.in good condition too.Great lathe though. Alistair

              Might be a scam anyway. The machine is in Florida and the seller listed it in Tennessee? Probably have to send him cash to a PO Box then he sends you to a vacant lot in Florida. Do a search on the image and see if the same picture shows up.

              Ops! Never mind. I mis-read Tallahassee.

                Looks like about $4000 from a dealer: http://www.woodturninglathes.co.uk/price_list.html
                Of course dealer is in UK and lathes are 'rebuilt' suggesting maybe not made any more, but
                rummaging on the site: http://www.woodturninglathes.co.uk/about.html, so 'new' might
                be a good bit more. Certainly no bargain.
