In April 2004, I mentioned that I’d found a garage sale Monkey Ward wood lathe I was going to fix up.
A gentleman who goes by Chev4T6 said he’d give me a couple of Craftsman turning tools he had lying around.
And he did.
Well, long story short, thanks to him, I’m now on my third lathe, and those two tools are now part of a collection of 12!
I really got into spindle turning during covid and it’s been a life saver.

So, thanks again Chev4T6, and Merry Christmas to all!

I have a box of nice blanks that, I some day, want to turn in to pens. Still haven't pulled the trigger on a wood turning machine. Not even a small one. Maybe in my retirement years?

It is a deeply infectious disease. You start small with $150 mini lathe making pens and before you know you it you are shopping for 5HP Deltas...

Well, it would go with all the other Delta/Rockwell machinery I have. I need space more than anything right now.

I bought an old Rockwell "school lathe' a few years ago. I started out turning bowls, then salt/pepper shakers, candle holders, etc. I usually do a different Christmas tree ornament every year to give out to friends/relatives. Makes a lot of shavings on the floor. I now have about 3 trees stored in the shop for future turnings.

Totally forgot about that Jim Bow.....Glad it turned you to wood. I have a great friend who is amazing turning anything. I ate a few sticks for being to aggressive. I still do a lot of
woodwork mostly kitchens and bathes I built a new garage when I retired the first time. Should have been at least twice as large. Wifey says I need a bulldozer to start at front door
and push it outta the back. Nay....too much good junk. And someone always needs sumthin.....Anyway Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year!!!
