Hi again
I've just found a Record Power RMPL300 on ebay. I would welcome feedback as whilst it looks in good condition and comes with chucks and a couple of tools it has a receipt dated 1995!!

If it's running, been kept clean and looked after chances are the worst thing that'll need doing is a change of bearings and /or belt which is neither difficult nor expensive. Even that is unlikely.

that'll get u started.....as for tools start slow and find what you need...
decent stuff costs a lot but last a lifetime....
get some good lighting and asap some dust extraction....then something to sharpen them on.....plus has it got a stand...?
either way get some weight on it to hold it down.....
good hints on here for that and everything you may want help with.......
this is a fantastic forum with lots of helpful experienced people....
look at youtube for ideas on tools not what they do.....
most of them are scary......
there are or were a couple of turning clubs up ur way.....can't remeber now as it was a lifetime ago for me.....
might be Macclesfield and or Warrington...
happy days......with you new toy.....
