    Shop Vac's 1.5 gallon model works pretty well for small/medium messes, has lots of power, and is only $30. I got mine for $25 this past summer.

    I recall seeing a review of that J/P (or perhaps its 3HP predecessor) on YouTube and the owner complained about having to find a spot to put the fence while in planing mode. I have the Rikon 25-210H...

    Hi Pete, I'd invite you to check out my "big list of lathes" spreadsheet to get more ideas. You can winnow down the choices by going to Data > Create new Filter View.

    I'm going to second Kyle's thoughts about an inexpensive set being a good learning experience for new turner. As the quote goes, "you don't know what you don't know". Making these spindles could be...

    I think Dueane is on the right track. The blank was lathe-mounted, indexed, and then carved with a secondary spinning cutter. The rose & flute patterns elsewhere on the leg would have been applied...

    I can confirm that Vicmarc's newer 1-1/4" chuck adapters are problematic, I had the same issue on my AB. The 6 or so other 1-1/4" female accessories I have have always worked just fine on my lathe. ...

    I am another vote for opting for getting a planer and only sanding when strictly necessary. My helical head jointer/planer does a great job on SYP material.

    That's overpriced in my opinion. I'd spend a bit more on the 3520C to get the cam-lock tool post holder and the remote control.

    The difficulty in sanding for "perfect" flatness on the lathe is us - the imperfect human. But I feel that the sanding board technique mentioned in this thread will get you good enough results.

    Hey Tom, being in Milwaukee I have the same climate as you. I've also found that using too many shavings in the paper bag will let mold grow, a handful or two is all I use now. Our relatively high...

    I'd argue that an off-the-shelf tool cart is the best way to go. Plenty of drawer storage and if needed you can encircle the sides with PVC tool holders.

    I like the style that puts the wide side of the top board facing up thus giving you either a sawhorse or a mini-mini-workbench. I've made two fairly similar to ones Paul Sellers has written about.

    I will third the sentiment that a fancy SRG is not worth it. I recently upgraded from a 7/8" to 1-1/4" model and find it a lot easier to use, so my advice would be to get a wide one. I happened to...

    Hey Ed, my advice would be to invest in a hand-powered, flat setup (stones, diamond plates, sandpaper, etc.) before getting a grinder. And I would advocate picking a flat setup over a Tormek, tool. ...
