Thread: New member from UK

    Hello All,

    I'm Mike Crawshaw, a computer programmer by profession but woodworker by inclination. I live in Cherhill, Wilts, England.

    I started turning seriously last year and am now on the slippery slope of addiction!

    I have recently upgraded my Record DML36 to a Record CL4-48 with Variable speedcontrol so I can tackle larger pieces.

    I look forward to a fruitfull association with this amazing forum.

    Regards,

    Mike

    Welcome to Family Woodworking Mike!

    And for those of you who, like me, had no clue what a Record CL4-48 is. It is a lathe:
