THANK YOU, GMosko, Marcia and Chris, for your information.
Sorry new to this site, I should have given more info. about my needs.
I just retired, so this is something I will be doing as a hobby, I've taken studio classes many times on and off over the past 40 yrs. and loved it, I'm not good but hope that practice will help. Moved to NC and cannot find a studio nearby.
I don't plan on making anything very large or heavy. I thought this might be a good starting wheel and see if I'm spending my time doing this and than move up to a Thomas Stuart which is my first choice.
