If you are thinking about getting into turning, have a look at this book. Might want to add it to your favorites or document file so can refer back to it as needed. I have his first book bought many years ago.

Ernie uses Nova lathes in his classes, not sure what models today.

When he talks about lathe prices, have to add more dollars today but basic information still good.

Thanks, Bill. My wife is just getting into lathe work and wants me to help her learn. I’ll absorb all I can and translate the best I can to her.

Many public libraries have both books and videos today!

Several good turning videos online too!
