you actually have a pretty good machine there, Definitely needs some cleaning up and a bit of TLC. Think you can have many enjoyable hours turning on it.

First thing, after you get it cleaned up…. especially the ways, then you will need some turning tools and a means of sharpening…..... depending on what you plan on turning, a good starter set like available at LV should get you going. There are other set available also, or you can just buy as you go….... but a good bowl gouge is always good to have….. but again, depends what you are planing on doing.

A grinder and a system to maintain a constant bevel is a must. the wolverine grinding jig is probably the best and well worth the cost.

Good luck…..........
