I originally bought my lathe on Ebay, what a pain, took 4 returns to get a good lathe . If I ever have to buy another lathe I would buy another Jet from Rockler this time. I have purchased other products from Rockler and Trust them to make it right!

This lathe is well suited to this task and of a convenient size and weight to place on my work cart.

Seriously, it's a great little lathe. Lots of mass to control out-of-balance bowl blanks until you've got them rounded. The half horsepower seems like plenty considering that you can only turn up to 10" bowls. I'd appreciate a bit lower low speed.
I bolted my lathe to a 3/4" plywood base and put a couple of wheels at one end and handles at the other. I can wheel the 70+ lbs of lathe around like a wheelbarrow easily that way, then leverage it onto a work stand or my work bench pretty easily. If you don't plan on keeping it in one place permanently, it's a good way to make your lathe mobile.
One issue - I repeatedly stripped the racheting motor lock lever on the bottom, and finally inserted some 1/4" threaded rod into the hole and installed a cam lever - a much better way to lock the motor, in my opinion.
One piece of advice. Realize that you will probably spend far more on tools, chucks, sharpening jigs, grinders, etc., than the cost of this lathe, so don't worry about getting a cheaper lathe. This is a very good lathe; well worth the cost.
I don't know if they have one that can get you to 42"
