If you do a lot of bowls buy a bowl lathe. They are specially designed
for turning bowls and large plates.

If you do bowls and spindles,etc then use a standard lathe with as much
as you can to enhance your life.

headstock lathe. You NEVER EVER turn outboard with it. You just
slide the headstock down to the end of the bed and turn off the end

this is what i thought this lathe did

glad you cleared that up

a really nice feature since it allows you to really get into hollow
forms without having to lean over the bed



Not sure I cleared anything up. I have looked at the Laguna lathes on the website. They are more or less identical to the sliding headstock lathes sold by Powermatic, Jet, Robust, etc. They are NOT the fixed headstock lathes like Oneway and Vicmarc. I have always thought the sliding headstock lathes were always the best way to make a lathe. No bending over the lathe to hollow out a bowl. Just stand at the end of the lathe and look straight into the bowl you are hollowing. No bending and twisting your back sideways.

A sliding headstock lathe eliminates the need to even think about having separate bowl and spindle lathes. Or compromising by using one to do the other task. Bowl lathes are basically short bed lathes with a large swing. And spindle lathes are long bed lathes. Sliding headstock lathes allow you to have BOTH a short and long bed on the same lathe. With a bowl lathe you stand at the end of the bed and hollow out the inside of the bowl. No bending over the short bed. With a sliding headstock lathe you can slide the head to the end of the bed and then stand at the end of the bed and hollow out the inside of the bowl. No need to bend over the bed.

This is a Vicmarc 300 bowl lathe. It has a 19" bed.

The Oneway 2416 is a bowl lathe. 16" between centers. Or you can add on the outboard turning bed and get a 20" between center bowl lathe on the opposite side of the spindle part of your Oneway.

I have a Nova Galaxy and you can go from 16” diameter swing inboard,
swivel the headstock to 45 degrees and instantly have a usable turning
diameter of up to 18-inches, just using the standard tool rest and tool
rest slide. Swivel to 90 degrees – you have a turning diameter of
32-inches using the outrigger system. This means the user can go from
inboard, turning of chair legs to turning a large hollow form vase or
bowl in a matter of minutes to set up. Other lathes take a lot of time
to set up for larger work as the head needs to be slid down the
tailstock end of the lathe, and the tailstock needs to be taken off. It
also means that the turner does not need to lean awkwardly over the bed
to turn – they can stand in a very comfortable position either to the
side or right in front of the turning.

yep

glad you are clearing things up
again

if you mentioned it i missed it but bending over is unsafe for many reasons

fatigue and big chance of making contact and harder to see into the
bowl or form
