HI, being new to this site I am struggling to find information directly related to wood turning. Am I missing something or is there no specific forum for this?
I am a long time wood worker and do like to surf a lot of the topics but really want to focus on the wood lathe and turning. Any help you can provide to help me search for or otherwise find related information would be great!

Hey everyone and thanks for the replies. Just as working on my lathe, once you know the trick things come easy.
I now feel much more comfortable moving around this site. Still lots to explore as time permits.

EJ, I have a couple of 4 jaw chucks and because I turn local wood into bowls and hollow forms I couldn’t or wouldn’t be without one. For me, bigger is better and I use my Oneway Stronghold for most of my larger work.
