    Hi Guys, I have just joined the forum and would like some advice I am a joiner to trade and retired now so am interested in purchasing a wood turning lathe.

    I have limited space in my garage but would still like to setup a lathe and don’t think i will be interested in turning the big stuff, maybe 12″ bowls or some small spindle work I have been looking at 2 lathes a record DML 305 and a Record DML 320 variable speed the DML 320 seem to be alot cheaper than the DML 305, as a starter to wood turning can anybody give me some advice on which of the two i should be looking at .

    Regards Dewar

      I was advices to go for the top end of what I could afford and when I factored in all the other items I needed the 320 was just in budget but as I say I’m happy with it and when I do outgrow it I hear they are quite re salable
