Gentlemen & Ladies,
I'm new to the forum, but I've been on a couple of others for awhile, If you have read my intro you will see that I've mentioned getting a Lathe (probably this spring when we all get our tax returns, other wise known here as TOOL TIME) anyways, I currently buy my turned legs or bases for tables from various suppliers (cabriole legs I make myself) but I would like to do my own legs and maybe get into a few other things for which I need a lathe and possibly a duplicator attachment. Now I know that a lathe will just be the start as I will need a good chuck or two, gouges and what not, But what would you all recommend? I'm looking to spend about 1000.00 to 1300.00 (total) I'm just begining but I dont really want a starter lathe that I will just outgrow in a year, So with that said would you all mind sharing suggestions or ideas?
Thanks in advance,
