    New member here from Indiana!

    Hello all. I have enjoyed woodworking on and off for about 15 years. I bought a small lathe about 10 years ago and made small items like pens, yo-yo's and such, then burned my hands pretty bad at my day job. I had to stop turning, and when my hands finally healed up about 6 months later I got intrested in a new hobby and put away my lathe. After moving into a new home I just never really got back into it. Well last week while on vacation I came across a guy who was selling pens and such and the spark has lit again. I've been getting out all my lathe tools and going through my boxes of older kits and wood scraps. I look forward to learning what's new and sharing.

    Thanks, yes those were fun to make. The kits came with some fine shredded lead material that looked like steel wool only (heavy) to add to the inside of the tubes so that you could make them to just the right weight.
