Just wanted to say Hi to all of you. I have been reading your posts and looking at your pictures for over a year now. I have enjoyed every minute of it. I started turning about 3 years ago. At that time all I had was a metal awning in the back yard. Last November I put up a 12 by 16 shed and made that my turning shop. Started with a Jet 1014. That little machine runs great. But like most of you it didn't take long and I wanted bigger. Thats how I got here in the first place. I E mailed Frank and asked him about the Grizzly he was using. Was all set to get one when Tool Nut had there big sale. Ended up with a 1642-2 Jet. In a couple of weeks I will be doing my first craft show. It is at my wifes work they hold one for employees only so very small and just a good way to meet people. Looking forward to reading a lot more posts and waiting for the day my stuff looks as good as yours.
