Hello Folks

Well I'v been boppin in and out of these boards for about a week now before I noticed there was a welcome thread...doh. So much good info here.
Anyway, I'm from Georgia and have been turning for about 3 1/2 years, though I had a break from it when I deployed overseas last year (the 1st Sgt would'nt let me pack my lathe).
My first love is segment work though I have recently discovered the joy of pens.
My first lathe was a dewalt drill clamped to my workbench with a rubber band around the trigger. I used it to turn knitting needles for my wife. That morphed into the 60 dollar ebay special that soon became known as "BB" (blue b'trd). BB is now a disc sander and I use a grizzly 462 (I'v read some opinions on grizzly, but from my view...it rocks).

Welcome Bill, can't wait till we hook up and do some turning together, maybe I'll get my old grizzly running good enough so we can play on it too, until then don't worry about a wallet, mine hasn't see any money sense I got married and that's been 23 going on 24 years ago...  smiley=lolk.gif smiley=lolk.gif smiley=lolk.gif

Hello Everyone !
My name is John,  I live in Abbotsford B. C.  Canada.
Just turned 53 last week , and got remarried in June of this year after flying solo for 23 yrs.
I work as a Realtor in Abbotsford and surrounding areas, including Greater Vancouver.
Hobbies are flyfishing and woodworking, and lately Turning which I got into about 2 yrs back. I started with an older Walker turner lathe Driver line which I quickly grew out of. my next lathe was a used General 260-20 which is enough lathe that I see myself having it for some time. ( though after seeing a friend of mine Stubbie 750, it is one I'm very interested in perhaps upgrading to in the future )
My shop is a stand alone  22' x 23' fully insulated garage that I'm able to heat with just one household oilfilled space heater, shop also has attic space for a few thousand BF of lumber that I have up there.
I joined the Local GVWG,  Greater Vancouver Woodturners Guild last year and since joining my turning has improved greatly.

John
