Watched a Utube video of your wood turning,and now I am hooked. I just received my Jet16-40 lathe. Do you have it anchored to the floor?

Howdy, Mark!
Good to know you have found a new hobby! I do not have my lathe bolted to anything and there really is no need to. You have that great soft start, variable speed. Just get your piece mounted, set the speed to zero, turn it up slowly. If the piece starts to vibrate, turn the speed down a very small amount at a time until it stops vibrating. Start turning! Now, that said, sometimes you can turn the speed up and get past that vibration. That takes a little more practice. I always turn at the fastest speed possible without vibration. Makes turning easier and you get better cuts.
Have fun with your new lathe!
