question about a sip lathe?
i am going to get a sip 1 metre wood lathe starter pack but there are a few things i wish to clarify before i get it:
.do i need a faceplate or a chuck to hold the wood and if so where can i get one to fit my lathe?
.the lathe bed is in 2 pieces so can i take the second piece off for turning small pieces?
.is the bed sturdy enough to use on it's own or will it need to be mounted?
i really aprecieate any help anyone can give me and i would love it if you could point me in the direction of woodturning advice!!!
