Without going through some kind of formal training, and even for those who have, its not easy to get the info you want or need due to the preponderance of useless info you don’t need.
Lathe video’s abound, but all you really see is someone else lathing.
As a newbe lather myself, I know that its not always easy to know the right questions. Doesn’t mean you don’t have them though.
1. My lathe came with two pointy things, where do they go and how do you work them safely?
This is only a short list of questions that should be a lot easier to find answers for.
You have to watch hours of video’s to find them.
Someone should make a good basic beginning lathe video that covers the stupid stuff us newbies need to know.
