Havenít been on in a loooong time.

Hi
I was on the forum a few years back but had less and less time for Woodturning.
Now Iím to the point where I have some back injuries (head on collision will do that) and Iím having to come to terms and grip the fact I canít do what I used to do. Cry

I started turning on a reeves drive Delta and now have a mustard monster, PM 3520B and a Jet mini 1014 with electronic variable speed.

I had hoped to get my turning all fired up again after we moved into a new house but my wreck was in Oct of last year and I donít see being able to do it again the way I used too.† I enjoyed making things others couldnít or wouldnít try, as well as traditional stuff. Some of my things bordered on ďvery largeĒ my biggest to date was a commissioned wall piece at 42Ē. It was basically a large platter, turned on multiple axis, cut apart and pinned back together using silver rods.

Anyway, I got a boatload of things that I will be selling. All sorts of turning tools, chucks, bits and both lathes. Also going to be selling my delta 14 inch bandsaw with a 10 inch riser.

Iíll post all the things for sale in the appropriate forum once I get it sorted.

I also have many turning blanks, rough turnings (lots) and pen blanks.

Since I live in Arizona, I have a good representation of Mediterranean Olive, Acacia and Mesquite.

Hello again to all those who remember me LOL GrinHello to all those who remember me LOL

We wouldn't allow garbage to be served on the table,
why would we allow it to be served to our minds?

I haven't seen anything from Jim in a few years. His last post was in Feb 2016.

When Jim retired, he dropped out of the forum. Sad to see him leave.
But for you, welcome back.

Very sorry to hear of your misfortune, hope things work out for you as well as they can.
As a new arrival in Arizona myself, I look forward to your postings. Back east I could find bowl blank size wood by the side of the road; those days appear to be over for me.
