What would you recommend?
I've only been turning since last Christmas, just pens and spindles. I have a Ridgid lathe (MT1), a 6" face plate, a pen mandrel, and some gouges and skews (no bowl turning gouges/scrapers).
Anyway, I want to turn something besides pens and spindles now, but I will be upgrading to a Nova lathe this summer so I don't want to buy stuff that won't transfer over well or require a costly adapter. The Nova is MT2 and has a different spindle.
What can I get that will allow me to turn something else and easily work with the next lathe? I'd like to keep the budget at about $200 right now. I'd like to turn just about anything else, but I am more interested in small bowls and candle holders.
I'd appreciate any advice on the next purchase.
