LOL, you are absolutely correct. The cost of accessories will far outweigh the cost of the lathe, no matter what lathe you buy. :-) You can accessorize yourself to death if you are not careful, and may end up not using a lot of those things.

I think you are taking a great approach in first determining what you want turn. Then purchasing a lathe (with room for growth) and accessories for that purpose. You can add other accessories when/if needed. I have a few things I “just knew” I would need, or was convinced I would need, and I have never used them. (i.e. bowl scraper, internal shear scraper, gimmick center finders, etc)
