    Hi, Can any one tell me where can i buy second hand manual
spinning lathe? It; doesn't matter from wich country. 

I use a metalworking lathe, a Jet 920 that I modified with a variable
speed motor. It has a t-slotted crosslide and it was easy to make the
toolpost for it. I made forms from hardwood and aluminum in forming 5"
dish shapes from Aluminum. Most metal lathes can be used for spinning.

I have a Yates American J170 in excellant condition that was designed
for wood and metal spinning was used for pewter. reasonably price
located StLouis MO withmany faceplates for mountig forms.
