I would highly recommend taking a few wood turning classes at Rockler, woodcraft or your local community college. It will save you a lot of frustration and $$ in the long run. I have found out the hard way that there are several techniques required to use the various tools that are employed in the different facets of turning. There are several videos out there but in my opinion there’s nothing better than good old hands on training with an instructor. Once you get a good feel for how the various tools are used and whats comfortable for you then you will be better informed as to the tools you will need and the safer you will be. Just my two cents! Good luck and welcome to wood turning it’s very addictive!
