Anything by Allan or Stuart Batty or Dale Nish to name a couple

But there are tons of videos some real good some real bad,but you can sort them out on You Tube

I had to learn lathe work the hard way, on my own. I got my first lathe about 50 some years ago when I was about 12 or 13, there was no internet back then just trial and error, but I survived it, but one time I was turning a red cedar bowl and got a catch hard enough to break the tool rest

There is also a wood turners guild that is pretty good,they have local wood turning groups that meet every month or so to share ideas

A manual for an old lathe you might find on ebay but will be hard to find. What information are you needing from it? Do you know how to operate it yourself?

I had an old Craftsman lathe the one with the tubular bed I inherited from my uncle. It wasn't great but it was fun until I got a better one. I ran the model # on google and came up with an owners manual I could print out. It doesn't tell you much but it's useful for lubricating and maintenance.
