Wow - this is an international forum indeed :-)

I have been doing a lot of reading. The next step is to acquire a good lathe. I welcome any and all advice. I am looking for something that I can use for fairly accurate work but doesn't break the bank. I have been looking at the variable speed Rikon lathes on leevalley.com but would love to know if something comparable can be had for a little less outlay.

Thanks all for the very warm welcome.

Salman

Jet makes similar lathes to the Rikon. I don't know who distributes them in Canada but here in the USA there are many choices including Woodcraft, Rockler and Craft Supplies to name a few.

Welcome from Tennessee. Toronto is my favorite large city.
