Welcome, and I have been to your site before, nice to meet you.  I am just getting into stoppers and have a peppermill set I have yet to start, though I have asked everyone here their advise on them.

Thanks for your welcome. I have chosen to go with the antique style mechanisims for my pepper mills. Since I do production work, time is my worst enemy. Trying to drill the 1/2 dozen holes for a regular mill plus trying to match up the top and bottom just takes me too long. Also my wine stoppers use a simple shape which is easy to turn with pretty consistant results. Also with the flat top it allow's me to insert pretty much anything I want. I still need to get a mini lathe. It hurts to watch my electric meter evertime I turn on my Powermatic. Especially to turn such small items. Oh well, in time.

Mike, those are some wicked cool mills!  I've never seen mechanisms like that, looks like something from Rube Goldbergs (or DaVinci's)  lab.  Do you have those made?

Rick,

Naw, I wished I had. I buy them at penn state industries. I love them so does everyone who sees them. Look under their coffee grinder section. I think their part number is pkgrind4. They arn't cheap. Almost 10 bucks each. But I buy them in bulk so I get a little discount. I know I could import them from china, but I would have to order about 5000 of them. I tried to import the wine stoppers, but they want a minimum of 10000 units.  They are so easy to make. I just drill a 1" hole through a 5" high piece of wood. I mount them between centers and turn away. I finish them with chestnut finish. It is a laquer based friction polish. Much more durable than the oil / wax finishes.
Take care.

HI fellow turner's I'm Barry Craven from Madisonville PA
I've been turning for two year's mostly faceplate work
but I also enjoy spindlework as well. I use a Nova DVR
but have my first tube bed lathe set a with the Beall
system.
I like turning mostly green/ cheery,walnut and maple
since I live in a wooded area stock is no problem,but
all species are fun and for me that's what it's all about.
I hope to contribute when I can and learn from you more experienced turners.
                   Thanks for the welcome
                                           Barry

Welcome aboard Barry and please feel free to participate regularly and often.  Sites like this work only if everyone participates.  If you'll notice we have lots of members but it seems only a small handful participate.  I would like to see that handfull increase greatly.

Having said that, I have been designated the Chatroom coordinator and welcome you to join us there on Sunday nights at 8:00 PM EST and Tuesday nights at 9:00 EST.  All you have to do is register like you did for this site. 

I also invite you to post your work in the photo sharing area.  Just as in the chat room, you must register in the photo sharing area, but it is easy.

Welcome Barry and any others that may have slipped in under the radar.  Read a lot, turn a bunch, share it, and chime in when you can.  Don't feel bad about asking questions.  We all have something we have trouble with from time to time.  The only lame question is the one that is not asked.  I look forward to hearing from all of our newest members.   8)

Hi Guys,
    Some of you already know me, I'm Phil's wife.  I figured that if I was ever going to get to see him or spend any time with him on his days off that I was going to have to follow him where his obsession lies, so here I am!  I've only done a little bit of woodworking and wood turning, but it's fun enough.  I will confess, even Phil will admit that my first loves are sewing and embroidering and spending time with my kids.  I'm doing this for fun, and to spend some time with my dear husband.  Don't be too hard on me.  I'm sure I'll see you around the website sometime.

Welcome Jeanne, you've got a good man there and he's got an even better woman just based on what you said...not many would take up a hobby like this to spend time with their significant others.  Kudos to the two of you!

As for turning, you're jumping in with both feet and that's the way to go.  Don't be afraid to try things just for the sake of trying them.

Welcome to the group Jeanne.  I well remember the night that you took over for Philip on a chat session.  I hope that you enjoy this turning thing as much as we all do.  And I hope that you enjoy this group.  Great bunch of people to associate with.  "Stitchin-girl?"  Sounds like a great "handle" to me. 

Cheers!

Jim
