Hi Read rum’s advice carefully one of the best pieces of advice I have seen on forums regarding beginers in along time.
There are three types of lathe tools Carbon Steel don’t hold an edge for long High Speed Steel these hold a edge for a lot longer. Then there is Carbide / Tungsten which IMHO are just plane old scrappers where the other two are tools that cut the wood and give you the thrill of seeing shaving and long ones when you turn green wood. Regards Tamboti

PS turning is addictive and there is no known cure so beware but please do enjoy it and no pictures it did not happen
