    The training materials on the AAW main site are really, really good. WELL worth the price of membership.

    BUT! You can join free with a guest membership for 2 months, which will give you access to just about everything on the site, i.e., far more than even the training materials. I just joined with the guest membership and started going through the training materials, starting with safety. Yes, I wanted to jump right into skills, but I'm happy I went through the safety materials first, as I've already corrected a few things. You may think you've already heard it all - I thought I had - but there are things that are particular to the lathe that are different.

    I have already decided to join with a full membership at the end of the 2-month guest period, a decision that was obvious after a single day's look around.

    If you are posting for help in "Getting Started" and are not already an AAW member, I highly suggest trying it out. The URL is www.woodturner.org

    The AAW are also quite good at promoting the hobby, both for those new to it, and for those with many years of experience or simply exploring the various aspects at the fringes.
