    New lathe

    Well, I finially did it. Ordered a new 1642 EVS 1.5 hp from Woodsmith here in Des Moines. They were able to meet and beat the Amazon price and there was no shipping charge. Only took a week for it to get here. Jeff and I picked it up Saturday, put it together and I have turned some with it. It is really smooth. Pics included. And yes that is Jeff and I reading some of the instructions.

    Congrats, Wayne. That's a great lathe. I suspect you're gonna really enjoy using it. (And I promise to keep your little secret about reading the instructions to myself.)

    Now you'll never be able to keep Jeff out of your shop.

    Aw come on, we can all see that you are holding them upside down, just posing for the pictures

    Congrats, I know you will love that lathe, I got to turn on one here recently, and it is sure sweet!

    I'm sure you will enjoy, it is fine fixins'.
    I see you used the same unpacking technique I did. Back up the ole pick-em-up to the door and unpack one piece at a time.

    He's leaving for about a week soon...I figure I should keep it in good working order while he is gone. Right?

    Jeff I think that is a fine gesture. Make sure it is running properly and clean it on occasionally.

    Congrats Wayne. Looks like you should have fun turning for a long time to come.
