Hello. You'll love that lathe... turning projects are extremely fun and rewarding. Look out for free/cheap wood from tree trimmings and craigslist sales, as commercial blanks can get costly when turning 95% into shavings and dust. Good lathe tools are worth the money if you haven't gotten a set yet.
Thanks for the kind words. Yes I have bought some " good" tools. I am looking forward to getting started. I have ordered a slow speed grinder and a one way sharpening jig and a couple of slide glide alignment jigs for sharpening.
I am looking for a one way Chuck guess I will have to break down and spend the 250 for one. If any body has a good used one and would sell it just let me know.
