Whoa, this looking and sounding expensive. Do any of you guys that turn stuff, sell any of the items? I usually do some commission work, as time permits to off set tool and lumber costs. So I guess it would be nice to be able to sell stuff, when/if my skillz would allow it. If one is not using firewood or self harvested stuff, seems like the blanks and big chunks would be pretty spendy.

Bottom line, can a guy be up and running for a grand on 110 power w/accessories and tools that will allow for some growth and maybe still meet some long term unforseen needs? I would like to do handles, mallets, bowls and skill permitting segmented turnings.
