Mike: I had a Rikon 70-100, nice lathe but, wished I had gotten the veriable speed Delta – bigger horses. The local turners club here is replacing their Jet’s with the Delta’s. I would suggest a chuck with removable insert, so it can be used on a biger lathe in the future, and true, they are expensive but, you will have them on hand for a larger lathe. The PSI set is a great starter kit – remember – High Speed Steel is High Speed Steel is High Speed Steel, no matter who sells it.
