I don’t have a wood lathe because I have a metal lathe, I use a couple of pieces of tarp across the bedways to help keep dust from getting behind the carriage apron.
I don’t know how to use the wood lathe tools-I don’t have any. I pretty much cut wood on the lathe using cutters shaped for cutting aluminum, and use the same methods cutting plastic or soft metal.
