Default Hello all.. Again.

Hello everyone.

Its been awhile since I have been around, lots of life changes, new jobs, etc then had a heart attack.

Well since I am now forced to take it slower, its time to get back to turning.

Working but budget light to start back off, so can not afford the jet or the rikon again, so I am looking at one of the intry level pen crafters kits, and would like some opinions on that vs a HF one and better tools.

I was thinking the pencrafters one cause it is a all in one starter, but also thinking maybe the HF model, with the HSS tools, a good chuck, and mandrel, might leave enough to get a grinder as well that way.

Thoughts from the group would be great. Mostly going to be doing pens to start, maybe some mills, small turnings.
