Yeah, the 1/2hp issue does seem to keep coming up. Something to consider though. What I am hoping to accomplish with this thread is to get a good handle on what it will/would take in real $$$$ to get into turning.

So far, with the Rikon 70-100, it looks like the initial outlay of funds will be around $800 or so. And that appears to be with just the most basic tools and accessories. This is all good stuff to know!

Keep checking the bottom section of the OP to see an ongoing tally of items and cost. 8-)
