Lathe tools

Looking to get into woodturning and would like some suggestions on tools that wont break the bank. Mostly planing to do spindles to start but might go into a few bowls once I can get some experience under my belt.

Going to have a Rikon Mini lathe if that helps with suggestions.

check on ebay. An old Craftsman set would be a good beginner set. Make you own out of old files.

You might want to pick up an very inexpensive set just to learn on and to see which tools you will be using most. Here is one set less than $20.

A better set than that one will also get you going for now.
