    Birthday gloat!!

    delta 46-460.jpgMy wife gave me a Delta 46-460 yesterday for my birthday!!!! It will be a good addition to my growing arsenal of lathes. Not too bad for a flat woodworker. This vortex is terrible. LOL!!! I think this smaller lathe will make turning pens and finials easier. Here's a picture for proof it happened.

    John, Happy birthday and I think you did good.......two pens & a pencil plus you took her out outback. You're one very smart dude.

    John,

    That is a neat shop and a midi lathe is a good addition. I am interested in the bed extension on the Powermatic 3520. It looks like there is a drop bed height section and then a small section that you can move the tailstock off the main bed. Is there a post somewhere that describes what you have? I have the normal bed extension and move my tailstock out to end to avoiding removing, but am considering installing it in the drop position to turn a big platter/???? and your little section is a novel approach.
