    I believe that this is the same lathe that Ed Jarvis had on display at SWAT a few years ago. It's impressive and bigger than it appears to be in the picture. Nothing is going to shake that big boy.:D

    The only things I could get into my basement shop would be the tailstock and the banjo.

    Might be overkill for turning pens though.

    John T. has a good idea..unless you are making real big pens. That is one big lathe!!! I noticed that it is on casters. How many would it take to move it? Guess I'll stick to my little Rikon.
