Might be ordering a Rockler Excelsior mini lathe. Anyone out here have one? If you do, what do you think of it?

Lol! Again, probably the wrong forum, buddy. You'll get some good responses over at PMF. If you look through the archives there, you'll find zillions of threads about lathes, which you may find helpful.

UHM is right, the pipe makers forum would have more craft specific answers to your question, but from my standpoint, I think it's a good lathe for the type of work I like to do. I had a little Jet mini lathe like that it it was perfect for my uses, which was making wooden lures. I don't know if that would translate well to pipe making though.

I don't know if that one is suitable for doing stummel work. You could probably dedicate it to doing stem work only and get a bigger one for stummels.
