need advice on affordable lathe
 
Hi,
I'd like to start learning how to turn wood on a lathe and make things like balusters, table legs, etc...

I know nothing about lathes but I see they run a huge gamut in terms of prices and features. I've seen used ones anywhere from $50 to $1500.

Can I safely get something used, cheap and functional for my needs? What are some things to look out for? Any particular makes and models?

Thanks.

Harbor Frieght puts a fairly good one on sale every know and then
 
If you go to the Harbot Freight internet site they'll send you thier sales via email and through the mail.
