So a friend of mine bought a Folksy FJ 1000 wood lathe at an auction for $70.Came with 2 sets of tools but no manual or anything else.Does anyone here know anything about these tools? My initial search has turned up nothing.

I purchased an FH 1000 many years ago and use it often. If your friend has never run a lathe or seen one in action, I suggest he visit a wood or machine shop to see how a lathe operates.

The operation, set up and maintenance is basically simple once you become familiar with it’s operation. This like any other tool, can be dangerous so learn before you try.
