Got this lathe from a friend whose late father owned it.
Been collecting rust and dust for eight years.
Got the head stock and lathe bed cleaned up.
Need to work on the tail stock, tool rest, and the rest of it.
Built a stand out of scrap wood I had laying around and bought a pair of
lawnmower wheels for it so I could move it around the shop.
Never tried my hand at turning, so I'm excited about learning.
Would appreciate any advice you guys might have.
I know there's a lot of info out there...almost too much...so any
pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
I need some tools and a chuck for turning boxes and small vessels.
Leaning toward the Oneway Talon chuck. A little pricey but I do have
a 20% off coupon from Rockler. I read a few unfavorable comments
about this model on Lumberjocks, mostly related to the electronics,
but it does run and the price was definitely right. Look forward to
hearing from ya'll.
