I posted this request in rec.crafts.woodturning earlier but would like some additional suggestions so I am posting here also.
I recently purchased a Karle spinning lathe from a friend...EXCELLENT small metal spinning lathe.
It weighs a bit over a hundred pounds so it is still managable in terms of portability...much like a Jet/Delta midi lathe...just heavier.
Unfortunately the lathe did not have any spinning tools with it. What spinning tools would the group recommend to purchase and where would you buy them?
Also with a small shop, I wish to make this lathe "portable" to store it when it is not in use. Any suggestions for a good combination lathe storage and spinning stand?
I do have the same table available that the lathe came with but it takes up a lot of room...room that I would like it to share with other tools. That is why I would like to have a portable storage solution available so it can be stored when not in use and also be available for demos at workshops.
