I have mounted mine on a cheap “workmate” style stand but of the adjustable height variety as the regular ones are too low. I’ve made it to come apart for transport round the shows and I’ve added a safety screen and simple dust extractor. It attracts a lot of interest so now I am holding a modest stock of them.
In the workshop it earns its keep making my range of little things such as bottle stoppers light pulls, paper knives etc. But I also find its excellent for making lathe-tool handles and candlesticks. To be honest however the torque is not enough to use a bowl gouge to full effect on a capacity bowl blank but it is enough to learn how as it will take modest cuts and stall if you have a dig-in.
Nervous beginners I teach, also find it very friendly and non-threatening but by the time they have finished their courses they have usually tried all my professional types of machinery too. When you start out you usually have no idea which type of turning will suit you best. I always then recommend buying something cheap and robust like this. When you then upgrade later it can be to virtually anything but this one is small enough that you don’t need to sell it to reclaim its space.
