New Turner needs advice on

Rich Pearson in Mill Creek, WA
>What chucks I need. I have a JET 1236 and basic lathe chisels. I have read a lot of the turning related articles and am leaning towards a One Way Talon chuck system.

I am going to learn to turn bowls. What kind of jaws/adaptors would I need for this chuck?

Any good (cheaper than Rockler or Woodcraft) sources that you know of?

Specialty chisels?? What would I need to have to get started?

Any turning clubs/associations in the greater Seattle area?

The pictures I see posted are really inspiring and I hope to someday be able to turn something worth posting myself!

Thanks in advance
