I would add that your budget and expectations come into play. I had a Delta entry level lathe (full size) for many years and turned hundreds of pens and a couple of bowls on it. I think it was like $1,200 when I bought it but as stated above for 1/3 of that you can get a machine that will turn pens. Last year I purchased a Nova Nebula about $3,300 after discounts and absolutely love it. It will be my forever lathe and I spent the money knowing that.

@Mark J above, our resident turning expert, was instrumental in helping me make the right choice and I couldn't be happier with the Nebula.
