    Where are you located? Someone may have a lathe they may want to sell.

    Sorry for the late response, had to do repairs at office and was flying out of state for training.

    I'm in Alameda, CA.

    Join AAW and your local chapter. A wealth of knowledge. Our chapter has several Jet lathes, chucks, and tool sets that we loan to new turners for 3-6 month periods while they learn what they'd like to eventually acquire. Perhaps yours does too-- even a little experience will help you think about what you need. The demos and hands-on lessons that most chapters provide are invaluable.
