    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.

        When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

        Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

        Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

        I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

        Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

        I have two variable speed controllers one is on my Digital embroidery machine(inherited from my Mom) and I also have a Rampower carver with the electronic foot pedal. The variable speed on both of those gives much more control. especially on the power carver....
