That motor means you will be extremely limited in what you can turn outboard, irrespective of which way you pivot the headstock.

The motor sticks out past the end of the headstock, hence, the max diameter
 you can turn is limited by the distance between the center of the face pla
te and the motor, times two, which in this case is probably not more than 1
2".  That means a 24" diameter piece is the max you could turn.

Not so! Our club has one and the motor sticks out to the rear of the  
headstock not the front. Checkout

Re: laguna revo with extras
I think Dr. Deb is implying that you will turn outboard on this lathe the s
ame way you turn outboard on a Oneway lathe.  Where the motor and headstock
 are fixed in place.  Put the chuck, faceplate on the back side of the head
stock and reverse the motor and move the toolrest over to the outbound side
.  But the Laguna is a sliding headstock lathe.  You NEVER EVER turn outboa
rd with it.  You just slide the headstock down to the end of the bed and tu
rn off the end of the bed.  The Laguna and Powermatic 3520 and Jet 1640 and
 Robust Beauty lathes are all sliding headstock lathes.  No outboard to the
m.  You can only mount the chuck on one side of the headstock.  Unlike the  
Oneway and Vicmarc and old General and old Delta lathes which had fixed hea
dstocks and fixed motors and you could screw the chuck on both sides of the
 headstock spindle.

Re: laguna revo with extras
I agree.  In fact my lathe has left hand threads on the outboard side.  
Inside is right hand.  I can turn with a spindle bolt a 24" plate  
easily.  I just have it out in the room - already - and off the ground.
I could do a 48" plate.  Only 24" down and 24" up.  I just don't.  Don't  
need it.  I have a large enough area and expanded near the head - no ways.

The 'modern' fancy ones are DC drive or 3phase drive and control the  
speed forward or back.

My lathe - circa 1947 is is belt driven from a motor that looks like a
20hp cage but is 1/2.  It just lopes along - no issue.  It is also a 110v.

Mark, my lathe is a circa 1998 Woodfast M910 (1 1/4 x 8 inboard and 1 x 8 l
eft hand thread, outboard) and has the same setup for outboard turning.  Th
e way I got around the thread problem was to have a couple of adapters made
 which allow me to use my normal chucks on the outboard side.

this is what i thought this lathe did

glad you cleared that up

a really nice feature since it allows you to really get into hollow
forms without having to lean over the bed


looks like the lathe is gone as the ad is gone

Not sure I cleared anything up.  I have looked at the Laguna lathes on the  
website.  They are more or less identical to the sliding headstock lathes s
old by Powermatic, Jet, Robust, etc.  They are NOT the fixed headstock lath
es like Oneway and Vicmarc.  I have always thought the sliding headstock la
thes were always the best way to make a lathe.  No bending over the lathe t
o hollow out a bowl.  Just stand at the end of the lathe and look straight  
into the bowl you are hollowing.  No bending and twisting your back sideway
s.

Re: laguna revo with extras
If you do a lot of bowls buy a bowl lathe.  They are specially designed  
for turning bowls and large plates.

If you do bowls and spindles,etc then use a standard lathe with as much  
as you can to enhance your life.

A sliding headstock lathe eliminates the need to even think about having se
parate bowl and spindle lathes.  Or compromising by using one to do the oth
er task.  Bowl lathes are basically short bed lathes with a large swing.  A
nd spindle lathes are long bed lathes.  Sliding headstock lathes allow you  
to have BOTH a short and long bed on the same lathe.  With a bowl lathe you
 stand at the end of the bed and hollow out the inside of the bowl.  No ben
ding over the short bed.  With a sliding headstock lathe you can slide the  
head to the end of the bed and then stand at the end of the bed and hollow  
out the inside of the bowl.  No need to bend over the bed.

This is a Vicmarc 300 bowl lathe.  It has a 19" bed.

The Oneway 2416 is a bowl lathe.  16" between centers.  Or you can add on t
he outboard turning bed and get a 20" between center bowl lathe on the oppo
site side of the spindle part of your Oneway.

I have a Nova Galaxy and you can go from 16? diameter swing inboard,  
swivel the headstock to 45 degrees and instantly have a usable turning  
diameter of up to 18-inches, just using the standard tool rest and tool  
rest slide.  Swivel to 90 degrees ? you have a turning diameter of  
32-inches using the outrigger system. This means the user can go from  
inboard, turning of chair legs to turning a large hollow form vase or  
bowl in a matter of minutes to set up. Other lathes take a lot of time  
to set up for larger work as the head needs to be slid down the  
tailstock end of the lathe, and the tailstock needs to be taken off. It  
also means that the turner does not need to lean awkwardly over the bed  
to turn ? they can stand in a very comfortable position either to the  
side or right in front of the turning.

yep

glad you are clearing things up
again

if you mentioned it i missed it but bending over is unsafe for many reasons

fatigue and big chance of making contact and harder to see into the
bowl or form
