I often wish I was in the South. Especially in winter.  2-3' of snow at a time is just no fun at all.  Never get that in GA, do ya?

Anthony we do have a member that lives not too far fro you but I will let him introduce himself.  I live in southern Indiana just across the Ohio river from Louisville KY.  I will be in your neck of the woods in July.  We are going to spend a day or two on vacation at Niagra Falls and my wife who is from the Rochester area wants to revisit some old childhood haunts, mostly in the lake canadaguia(?) area.

Welcome aboard, Also from (not quite as) far south georgia.

Not much snow here, but lots of rain and lots of 100 degree days. Everywhere has its ups and downs I guess.

Hey all,

I've been checking out the site for the past week or so and finally signed up.  I have been turning for about two years.  I mostly use my jet mini lathe, but I also have my father-in-laws old craftsman full size lathe if I need it. 
I live in the south burbs of chicago, married with one son and one ? on the way.  I am a firefighter and do most of my turning now while I am work.  It seems to be the only place I can find some time.  Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.  Have a great day.

Chris

Welcome Chris glad to have you join in.  If you have any questions just ask someone should know or be able to direct you to the answer.  Did I read right that you are able to turn at work.  I spend so much time there I wish I could take a mini to work and get in a few hours turning.  Enjoy this forum it is the greatest.

Nice to have you here, Chris.  I'd sure like to be able to turn at my workplace, but I'd never pass the physical at yours  Cheesy, so good for you.

Hi Chris, Welcome to WR.  So how long have you been turning and what is your area of interest so far?  If you haven't already found it, we have a good selection of projects and techniques on the site to get the juices flowing and I think someone mentioned the photo gallery.  If you have a chance, drop a photo in and let us see where you're at.  Must be nice to be able to turn at work, although, I'd have a hard time responding to the fire bell if I were in the middle of a turning!  Wink

I guess as a firefighter you spend a lot of long days at the station house?  In your case the midi lathes are perfect.  I am with everyone else here and hope to hear more from you and see some of your work.  The group here is the best of the bunch as far as I am concerned and we can always use more.  Lets see now, we have a policeman, a fireman, a doctor, an engineer, a postal worker, and a minister, any astronauts out there?  Wink.  

All kidding aside Chris welcome to the site and hope you enjoy participating.

I don't know, Phil, quite a few of us have been accused of being 'way out there', does that count?  ???

I don't think being "way out there" counts.  You all have to be a little bit mentally disturbed to pick up ugly pieces of wood and somehow see something in it and turn it into art.  Must be that the creative gene and the crazy gene are linked somehow.

But add me to the list honey, I'm a teacher!   Grin  That counts for something!

Jeanne you didn't do too badly w/"an ugly piece of wood" your first time out. Perhaps the "black box Guru" taught the teacher this time.

You keep us in "stitches" and your place in this august group will be "sewn" up. Roll Eyes
