Hi Hi I finally found a lathe on ebay in my price range. Of course I will have to buy some things for it like a drawbar and tool rest. Its a peerless and looks to be in good shape. I have a few questions while I am waiting for it to arrive.
A motor - what kind of motor do I need? How powerful?
Collets - What collets should I be looking for at first? I would like to try and make balance staff's and possibly stems.
Thanks in advance.
