Default More Questions About GO432 Lathe

I'm now looking at the Grizzly GO432 lathe and see that the lowest speed is listed at 600 RPMs, but a post on another thread implies that this speed is to fast for turning large diameter bowls which is one of the things that I want lathe for. My question has to do with the importance of the speed of the lathe for such bowls and what is the ideal speed for that appliation. Also, any comments on this peticular machine will be very much appreciated. So far, I am very happy with my Grizzly jointer and band saw and would like to stay with their products.
