Yep should have told you the Lathe was the cheapest part before you bought it. All that extra stuff tools, accessories and misc items can cost 3 times more then the lathe.

A VS grinder with a wolverine or similar sharpening system and a good sharpening wheel are definitely a must. Dull tools takes the fun out of turning. Face shield and other safety gear also a must. Multiple cutting tools, bowl gouge, chucks and other attachments also needed or at the least very helpful.

Definitely stop by the bank.

After playing over the weekend I agree, I have a BUNCH of little things to pick up! A larger selection of sand paper, a face shield (been using safety glasses so no worries), a sharpening system is a must and I'm working on that now, and I would really like to try out a nice bowl gouge but that may have to wait a bit.

You guys mentioned nothing about the different finishes that would be needed, the cool pen turning setups or the razor kits!

All joking aside I'm really liking it and can see how easy it is to become hooked. Sometimes I loose interest in long projects but with this thing it's nice to just chuck something up and be finished with it in no time.

BTW; I'm figuring by the end of this weekend the wife will not have a candle in the house without something wood and round to set it on.
