I was turning a piece on the lathe last Saturday it was not too big and…


My gouge got caught on the work and the momentum of the wood slammed it down into the tool rest and broke it.  I had thought I had only broken the tool rest, but it seems now that I also bent the head stock shaft. All of my face plates and chucks have a pronounced wobble when turning on the lathe now.  The question is do I fix this lathe or get a new one.
