    I just love "From Me" -- "To Me" Christmas presents!

    The offer was much too good to pass up!




    So this old girl gets relegated to the garage until someone comes along to adopt her like I did.



    And this young buck gets to turn pens, and maybe the odd bowl. (I said maybe!)

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Congratulations Mack! But with that one you can turn bigger things than pens!
    It will be like killing flyes with a cannon.

    Besides having seen the quality of your work I truly believe that it is not the lathe but the craftsman what makes a piece unique.

    Enjoy it! and please post the first piece you make with it even if it is a bonker (is that the word that you use?)
    Best regards,
    Toni

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Frank, scroll down below the picture of the Delta to see the Oneway he replaced it with.

    Mack, I suspect that Mayo will handle pens just fine. Bigtime congrats!

    Some chickens just don't get subtle humor. Sad.
