The electronically variable speed model has cast iron rails. It takes
a bit of tune-up but is a decent lathe. The tubed kind is OK, but
takes a lot of getting used to. I have a friend who used to turn
cannonball bedposts 6' long on a pair that he had welded together
(tubes). He made some good looking beds, but my guess is if he'd not
had 20 years experience in a woodworking factory, the tool would have
been nearly impossible to master.
