  • New to the lathe

    I have an opportunity to get a vicmarc vl100, never used, for $250. I've never used a lathe before and don't know if a mini lathe will do what I'm hoping to do. I really only have plans to do turnings for table legs and such. I know I would have to get a bed extension in order to do that kind of work. Is this a good lathe to buy or should I just look into a bigger lathe since I don't plan on doing smaller more intricate work? Thanks for any help/suggestions you guys can offer.
