Seems to be necessary for turning a brush handle. I’m in the exploratory phase right now. Winter is here, I’m bored, thinking of things to do with my time. I don’t know much about them. I know variable speed could be useful, and reverse. I do know I want a table top lathe. I have a work bench in the shed to use. My cousin works at Harbor Freight so I can get a 20% discount there. Other than that I’d probably have to order online because there isn’t many (if at all) available in the small town I live in. So let’s say my requirements are * Variable speed * Reverse * Table top * Sub $200 (?) What ya recommend?
