What to buy for a New JET JML 1014VSI

I need help from you experienced wood-turners on what to buy for a new out of the box Jet JML 1014vsi. I`m new on this field and want to start turning pen, bottle stoppers and bowls for now.
I`m a craftsman for a little over 38 years and have a pretty decent shop which it makes it less expensive than if I would have to start from scratch all together, but I have nothing to turn wood.

Send me the list.


By the way your recommendations helped me buy my new Jet.

Assuming that you have a BS and are just refering to turning tools,I would recommend the 3/8 spindle or bowl gouge,a narrow parting tool,1/2" roughing gouge to start.I think these tools will do what you have plans on turning.If you havn't done any turning,then I would suggest a class,or maybe someone in a turning club near you,to help you get started.

God Bless all

Hi David,

Congrats on the Jet mini! That's a well-built workhorse of a lathe.

What you buy next largely depends on what you plan to turn but there are a few "essentials" that apply to general turning. Read this article for a list (and a few pointers):

Getting Started in Woodturning

I don't go into specific brand recommendations but the article will give you an idea of the type of items you'll need.

HTH!

Neal
