Welcome aboard, John. Ask away, there will usually be someone who either knows the answer, or where to fine it. I doubt that there are any dumb questions. Plus, questions and their answers generally help more than the person asking.
Darn good looking old lathe!

As they say, the only bad question is the one that's not asked.  Welcome aboard, John.   8)

The nice thing about having a new guy on board to ask the so called "dumb" questions is that it spares the rest of us from asking them. I've learned as much from everyone else's dumb questions as from my own.

Welcome!

Been out and about for a couple of weeks with various things going on, so I just wanted to add my Hello to all of the new members that have joined recently.  Hope you're getting all you can out of WR...let me know if you'd like to see something & I'll see what I can do about putting it up.

If anyone has a tutorial or project plan they'd like to share, feel free to email me at wr_manager@sbcglobal.net.

Hello All,
I just found this site, I see some familiar names here, I will help when I can and hope to learn some too!

I have been turning for almost 2 years, I started out on a Jet Mini that lasted for about 9 months till I wanted to do bigger turnings so I got the PM 3520A still have my Jet Mini.
I enjoy all the smells and sensations of turning many different species of wood that I harvest myself. I particularly like the way woodturning allows you to create something right before your eyes!
I also get just as much satisfaction making homemade woodturning tools that I use everyday.
Looking forward to hanging out here!
Jim Ketron

Glad to have you with us, Jim.  I drive through your part of the world a couple of times a year.  My inlaws live in E. TN, so we drive down 25E from Corbin, KY to Bean Station, TN.  That takes us right over the top of Clinch Mt.  Sure is a lot nicer now than it was 27 years ago when we started dating.  Cut 45 minutes on our trip when they opened the new road out of Middlesboro.   8)

Just found this website a week ago and just want to say hello and introduce myself. 

What great resource!

I’ve been turning for about 20 years, starting in the UK and for the last 10 years in the US.  I suppose I did things backward starting out professionally turning as a pattern maker, then relegating it to a hobby and now thinking of starting to make my hobby/habit start paying for its self.

Welcome Andy We're glad you found us.  With experience like yours I am sure you will have a lot of input.  I look at your profile, It seems we have a lot of members in the great state of Washington.
