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.
