I am located in Indonesia and I am suppose to produce colomn in wood.
The maximum length of those column will be 7 meters and diameter 40.
The problem is that those column must be round.
Could you give me advice of the machine to choose?
Do you know companies selling second hand machines?
For information I am located in Indonesia.
Thanks in advance for your help.

To make a round column you'll probably want a lathe. A 7m x 1/2m lathe
will probably be fairly expensive. You might consider building your
own either from the ground up or by lengthening a shorter lathe.
There is an interesting presentation showing the re-building of a
lathe for production of columns at
http://www.plamann.com/sys-tmpl/lathe/ that may provide some
inspiration and guidance.

I'd suggest checking on www.ebay.com and doing a search for used
lathes on www.google.com

You might be able to build a lathe locally for less expense than the
cost of shipping from the USA or Europe. Use your regional resources
to check Australian, Taiwanese, etc. sources of used machinery.

Sorry 'bout that... working on a computer all day gets me talking in
acronymese sometimes. 'Do a google search', either specifically in the
or a more general search
