    It all depends on your budget. I have a Powermatic 3520B and I love it. I turn everything from pens to large platters on it. While it may be out of your budget, it's a really nice lathe. For a little...

    Thanks for the replies. My shop space is limited so that's why I'm looking for a bench top machine. One thing I thought about with any of the machines is being able to have the stock hang out past...

    I get mine from Factorydirectcraft.com. Search for mushroom birds and there's lots of options. I usually get the ones that are 3/4" long as that seems to be the best size for my birdhouses.
