I know this isn't a woodworking forum, but maybe someone out there has a small wood lathe they don't want or use any longer. I will be using it for turning fly rod handles/grips.
It has been suggested that I make one with a hand drill and one of the many simple kits out there. No, I would prefer a real lathe with good bearings, a stable base, ability to use a variety of chucks and spurs, and a decent tool rest.
Size? I only need to be able to turn up to 10-12" in length, with most pieces at 7" long
Thanks for checking this out!

Try Seattle Woodturners.  The monthly newsletter often has lathes for sale (the November newsletter includes one that may be a little larger than you want, however).  https://seattlewoodturners.org/newsletters/

Thanks RBO. I am looking for a used one first, but will buy new if I don't find one.

Just to be clear, I was referring to the want ads in the newsletter which generally feature used equipment
