Congratulations on the new tools! From what I read here a lathe opens up a whole new world of wood working, enjoy!

Welcome to the slippery slope! Once you get the feel for turning, there is just something about the feel of the shavings spewing off the gouge… Especially when working with cooperative woods…

Your life just got very interesting for sure! Have fun, and be safe!

thank´s Rick

I don´t know that brand ... well there is so much we can´t get here
but what wuold you compare it with in other brands we maybee can get
and what level of price do you think it is … low – middle – high
I know you wrote H-F but that doesn´t say me much other than
what some people have wrote on L J .... why I ask ….. becourse it seems to
be just the right size to use when restoring tools and need some handles :-)
