Congrats Mark on the Delta. You will like it. I had one and gave it to my nephew to get him started turning. As far as tools go Pinnacle, Sorby, Ellsworth, etc. are all good tools. I started out by buying some Benjamins Best tools from PSI because I didn't want to ruin any $100 tools learning to sharpen. One thing you will want is a Wolverine sharpening jig or a sharpening jig to sharpen your tools. That is the key to turning is properly sharpened tools so they are sharp. Good luck and by the way both of Bill's DVD are awesome.
