Home has never looked so good, let's put it that way.
South Carolina, North Carolina? Sorry y'all, but your highway crews SUCK at
dealing with that kind of stuff.
The trip started fine, until I got to the bottom of the mountain and crossed
the state line. North Carolina's snow plow was busy somewhere else. I
think South Carolina was using a road grader, since they don't have a snow
South Carolina doesn't own any salt either, evidently.

Take her to a wood show where they have a legacy orminital mill and let
them show it to her. I'd bet if you bought one for her, you'd never get
to turn again. She'd use the legacy when you weren't home and be all
over you when you were just thanking you for buting it.

With the right attachment you can do a shallow bowl. Only small
undercuts allowed, I think.
yes- in spades. I have only dabbled in both, lathe wins for shear
enjoyment, hands down. I would never consider my lathe a WASTE OF
MONEY. The legacy I used- time will tell, so far, it is just a big
You can make a bowl or platter with a legacy. And if you desire you can
make a set of salad bowls all in one afternoon EXACTLY ALIKE.
The legacy makes it funner because you don't spend so much 'time'
playing. Your work comes from sketched plans which has the exact bit to
use. You have to guess which type of wood chisel to use and you will
worry about tear out everytime you make something.
The legacy is just funner to use and is easier to use so you can finish
Besides, if bowels and pens are all you want to make, you should get a
mini lathe. But why spend $400 on a mini lathe when a full size lathe
is $650 and you can make stair spindles. Of course why spend $650 on a
full size lathe when you can spend $1000 on a true milling machine and
do 10 times more.
Joe Woody Woodpecker demonstrated his obsession with comletion over
process and lack of understanding of what a hobby is:
You want to make everything alike
You want to do it as fast as possible
You don't want to think about which tool to use
You don't want to think about how to design the thing you're making
You don't want to learn technique
You want to finish the job
You don't have a clue on what lathes make what items
