beginner turner Questions?

Robert Case
>Hi,

You all have been great, thanks! For a beginner "turner" with a Jet 1236 lathe, I have been making some pens-much fun, and want to start making some bowls, what do you recommend,
using a:
1. Oneway Talon?
2. Oneway stronghold?
3. Nova?
4. SuperNova?
5. Oneway 4" Faceplate?
6. Oneway 8" faceplate?
7. Or what should I purchase?
8. Best place to purchase?
9. which two or three bowl gouges to purchase?
10. Best video/DVD to purchase "How to?"
This doesn't have to be my "last" purchase, but I would rather purchase the "best option" the first time around. Besides pens/pencils, I have never turned anything, but think that I would want to "turn normal" sized bowls and plates etc.
(not minatures). I have one 1/2" skew chisel and 3/8" bowl gouge--inexpensive freebees.

Thanks once again!
Robert
