I believe that Woodcraft puts it on sale about once a year, and that should be in the next couple of months, if I remember correctly? I think that it goes on sale for around the price of what I was going to pay for the “demo model,” but the sale price at Woodcraft is just for the lathe itself, not for the cast iron leg set which was going to be included with the “demo model” and the leg set is an additional $399 regular price. That’s why I was so tempted to pick up the lathe at the Woodworking Show, as it was going to be around $1000-off regular price.

I’m sure your local turning club is a great group of people that will be willing to help you learn more about turning and offer solid advice on both tools and technique. You may even be able to pick up a used lathe in good condition from one of the club members.
