    G0766 22 X 42 lathe - Ordered!

    Thread Starter: Roger Chandler

    Well, just as a follow up to the other thread......I just pulled the trigger on the new G0766 :o:D Not trying to be the first or anything like that, but feel like this will serve me well for years to come, and is likely the best value in a large lathe on the market today. While one can see it...

    Adirondack chairs - your material of choice?

    Thread Starter: Jim Mackell

    Router Lift Suggestions

    Thread Starter: Mark Blatter
