Hi From Santa Rosa, CA

New guy here.  I tried turning about 50 years ago and got frustrated.  When I worked a short time for Woodcraft in 1999-200x.  I purchased a small Jet Mini-Lathe and turned a pen or two.  Tried a few other things and, due to lack of skill, gave up.  So here I am 16 years later wanting to get back into the fray and spend some time learning.  I took a short "class" about two weeks ago and turned a couple of pens, two bottle stoppers, a small ornament and a small bowl.  I'm jacked.  So, to get re-started, I purchased a non-standard stand for the Jet, put a wood slab on top and now have to figure how to actually mount it.  I'll ask for help in another post.  The stand I purchased is designed for a Delta Midi lathe.  It's a bit long.. but, hey, it was about $100 less than the Jet stand.  We'll make it work

Looking forward to meeting you all.  I'll have a lot of questions in the beginning.  I'll also have to learn how to use the forum.  I tried to do a thank you reply to Ron S.. but, I was not allowed.. ???  We'll figure it out.

Welcome to the forum Bill
I'm sure there are plenty here who have already been where you're at. I'm confident they can answer any questions you may have.
