My old Midi (mini)lath just isn,t cutting it so i,m thinking of upgrading,but was wondering if i should replace it with another midi(JET or DELTA) or go full size. Space isn,t an issue so are there any advantages with going with the smaller version. It would be used for lures and cork grips ,i don,t have an interest in turning any bats or table legs .It just seems the full size aren,t that much more money and are readily available. What i,m asking is can a full size lathe do what a mini can. Any Thoughts Thanks Jim
