Best starting point for using a lathe? - 27 replies

Hello hello, I picked up a lathe a few weeks ago for a song off craigslist (1960’s craftsman with a 40 inch cutting area and tools included for about $100) and I have been watching a few videos as to how to cut correctly [something about riding the bevel :)]. I’ve been using builder grade 2×4s glued together because I have th...
