thanks guys, you have given me lots to think about

i will most likely try my hand at bowls and hollow forms, furniture legs maybe who knows what else. i have zero interest in pens but may try some of the other small turning projects

i have a grinder so i think im set there though may need some different grinding wheels?

as for chucks im a bit torn. is there a budget option? the ones ive been looking at cost more then the lathe itsself which IMO is unacceptable. looking through some older turning books there seems to quite a few other options (although they may not be as easy) but some seem pretty simple (glue blocks). maybe my thoughts on this matter will change once i start getting into it
