    I got the Grizzly T25920 - 12" x 18" Variable-Speed Wood Lathe. You do have the change the belts to get to different speed levels which can be a little bit of a pain. I got a set of chisels from Harbor Freight. I know they aren't the best but they are a good starter set and they can help me learn what they do and how to use them. I'll have to get a bench grinder to sharpen them eventually.

    Thanks Rolf for the information. Can't wait to dig in, make mistakes, and learn.

      You will need a bench grinder sooner than later. Many woods have a lot of silica that dulls the tools , and it is very difficult and frustrating to try turning with dull tools.
