I am new to the forum and new to wood working in general. I just bought my first lathe today. I am excited to get started and cant wait until I turn out my first piece.

Thanks
Josh

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.

Hey guys

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.

Thanks
Josh

Welcome to a great site - I see turning is a top interest and a good one. Are interested in other aspects of woodworking?
