I have several cheap sets of lathe chisels that I bought over the years the last set was Frued I havent regretted the purchase. As for a lathe I have a couple of cheap ones and then I bought a Shop Smith that is as old as I am it works perfectly but I havent tried it out for a lathe yet. I have been itching to make some pens though. What I really wanted was one like I used in wood shop class big heavy and cast iron.

Good luck with your choice. Cheap purchaces always cost more money in the long run.
Take your time and get the best you can afford the first time.
