Speed, the rpm (revolutions per minute) you run the lathe at, is critical. Too slow, and it’s hard to get a good surface finish on your turning. Too fast, and turning becomes very dangerous. We provide a speed chart for you that breaks this down, and you’ll see how to properly and safely mount a spindle blank on the lathe.
