Hello and please forgive my first posting here to these forums.
I have purchased the HF 10×18” mini wood lathe (http://www.harborfreight.com/5-speed-bench-top-wood-lathe-65345.html) as a “first start and training tool” in order to practice and learn turning of wooden handles, spindles, small bowls, and doodads. Having done some preliminary research and training on using a lathe I know that the lathe I purchased is a bare bones set and could be enhanced by purchasing a few extra chucks or additions.
In the searching I have done of the internet I was unable to find any definite answers to new four way chucks or other additions which would enhance the usability of this lathe. Please, if you have any suggestions of items available online I would love to hear them.
Currently I have a few hundred dollars to spend, left, after purchasing proper tools and safety equipment.
Thank you for your time and help.
