Since your plans for the first lathe are short term, I suggest you look for a used one. Find a local woodturners club if possible and make your interests known. Our local club has loaner lathes, and members are often disposing of old lathes as they upgrade to new ones.

The one I use now is an old Craftsman similar to the one I started on 70 years ago.

-- Phil Allin - There are mountain climbers and people who talk about climbing mountains. The climbers have "selfies" at the summit!
