HERE ARE SOME USEFUL LINKS FOR THE WOODTURNER
Marc Adams School of Woodworking
Outstanding school for all things related to woodworking. Alan does the majority of his teaching at this school, located in Indiana.
Robust Tools of WI https://turnrobust.com
As far as I know this is the only American company still in the business of making serious lathes. A great source for lathes and some accessories (tool rests, live centers, ring/safety drives). Alan is a dealer for Robust.
Oneway of Canada https://oneway.ca
Maker of quality lathes, chucks and many lathe accessories. Alan is a dealer for Oneway lathes and its other products.
This is a machinist supply company for just about anything related to working metal. It is an excellent source for drill chucks, steel, drill bits, etc. that even a woodturner may require.
The Sanding Glove https://thesandingglove.com/
Another excellent source, probably the best source of woodturning abrasive materials such as pads and discs.
Turn Tex https:// turntex.com/
If you are interested in doing your own resin injecting into wood, this is the place.
This is a wonderful source for a full line of shellac flakes and all things shellac. They also carry a full line of Behlen finishing products.
