I have a DML24 for 13 or so years and I'm pretty happy with it, except
the size restirction on bowl turning.
I was looking at buying a bigger lathe with a rotating headstock when
I came across the "DMLSHU SWIVELHEAD UPGRADE FOR DML24". Looks like
it'll do the job for my exsiting lathe.
The question is - is it worth it? According to the record website it's
60 quid sterling - but I can't find it for less than 80 on the
web...add shipping to ireland and I could be paying 100 quid
sterling...and while that's a lot cheaper than a bigger lathe....if it
doesn't do the job well then that's 100 quid down the drain.
Appreciate your input,
P.S. I'm in the Republich of Ireland if anyone has suggestions for how
to get these cheaper.
