There are plenty of items you can make on a metal lathe that go with wood turning.
I will be turning some threaded bushings for my Carba-tec threading tool today.
Making tool handle ferrules takes very little time on a metal lathe, usually takes more
time drilling and threading the set screw holes. The metal lathe also makes quick work of
making various sized face plates and other types of jigs need for wood turning. A metal lathe
can easily pay for itself when making your own tools needed for this hobby.
