I will have to check out some of what you mention as none of that is familiar to me yet. I did a look last night on youtube but some were not elementary enough and assumed some skill with this and others were not relevant. However, I will look again tonight using some of what you mention to narrow my search so that helps.

So i was using a drill press and some hacky methods of mounting my palm routers to it to try and make rings for my little girls. They really like them and I was enjoying making them. I always had it in the back of my head this would be so much easier on a lathe and have always wanted to try it even prior to possibly make some bowls. Those were the main things. I haven’t even went to look on how to do either yet on youtube since I feel like that is jumping the gun?

I have a Jet jwl 1221sp. I still have the HF chisels but not sure if i will return them and get a different set referenced here or simply go with another to see if they are better.

When i had thought about the lathe in the past and saw what people were doing it looked relatively safe and very enjoyable. Sill looks enjoyable but i came across a number of videos when simply trying to understand technique last night that displayed and mentioned about the dangers of catches. I have to say after those when i went to try it i was pretty darn timid around it. The very very basic videos are a bit tuffer to come by i found.
