I saw a Facebook video of a guy using this therefore I am fully qualified to use this machine *clicks buy*
One thing to think about if you don't already have a lathe, you'll end up spending almost the price of the lathe again on tooling, tools, and accessories for your lathe.
It honestly is. Growing up I would use my dad's lathe to turn all kinds of things. Nothing fancy or anything I kept but it's very satisfying to pull a bitch log off the firewood pile and turn it into something special. One thing I made a lot of were "trapped rings" where I'd keep the ends fat and carve out wood rings in the middle that couldn't slip off the ends. No idea why but I loved doing that. I'm really thinking about buying this. He gave me his turning set when he retired and I think it's time.

This is I believe a very good deal. I have the non VS model and have had it for years and it has never let me down. For anyone wanting to get into turning I'd not hesitate to recommend this lathe.

If you are in the market for a midi lathe this is a very very good deal. I bought this model lathe and it is high quality, no issues to speak of. The motor offers a lot of power for its size and the variable speed makes it easy to adjust turning speed as needed.

Love my Jet Lathe... if I could start over I would never have bought the "cheaper" Shop Fox! This thing, compared to some cheaper ones, is a tank.

I talked myself out of it at $599, but couldn't fight it any more at $546

What is this contraction?
It turns a piece of wood around so it can be shaped and sanded. Think of how they make baseball bats, this is what they use to make those, chair legs, etc
