    A bit of a surprise......

    I had to check recently for our local turners club, a "When did you start turning" questions, I was surprised to look back and find out it was March 3rd 2006.........

    Man, not even a year has gone by since I got that C-man lathe and started this..................hobby............???

    Boy I've moved on from there, but I know I have a LOT left to learn!

    The Dungeon is all swept and cleaned up for the magazine photo shoot tomorrow, now the big question............what to wear

    Cheers!

    I'd recommend clothes.

    I hope the shoot goes well for you.

    What...you don't have a lathe turning uniform? oh well probably Vaughn's advice is best. Have a good one on the photo shoot.

    Funny guys

    I wanted to buy a turning smock, but my lovely wife looked at that and said "What.......$75...?? I can make that for $5 - $10 easy......"

    I guess this is her revenge for me saying that all these years

    Cheers!

    Definitely get a smock. I love mine, keeps those nasty chips from sticking to every part of my exposed body.

    And also, what magazine article???

    Yep Ken is pretty fast on the draw. Wouldn't be a pretty site wearing just a thong and turners smock.

    Sorry couldn't resist Stu. Hope the shoot goes well for you. What magazine?

    Ken is too fast, but I disagree. You definitely need to wear your pink thong. (under the smock of course)

    Ah but you forget he is from the land of sumo wrestlers -- and look what they wear!

    Can you see the headline?

    Go for it Stu, you can always use the shop vac to clean the bod off when you are done turning!
