Thread: Hey Y'all

    Hey Y'all

    Hey everybody. My name is James and I am an old tool nut. I love the feel of a vintage tool in my hands and as my wife knows, when I buy one I always intend to sell it but I have a problem with sticky tools. Now what is a sticky tool you ask? It is a tool that once it touches my hands it tends to stick around. So far she has been a good sport about it.

    I have a well stocked shop with both Neanderthal tools and the tailed variety as well. I enjoy flat work but I guess I am better known for the pens that I turn. They are nothing fancy, just straight forward pens but I manage to sell a few every year to help cover the cost of keeping the lathe around.

    I hope to share and garner knowledge with this group and look forward to getting to know the personalities here.

    James

    Welcome James, delighted to meet you. You'll find a nice group of folks here, some are immensely talented, many are generous with advice and information, and most have a good sense of humor.

    Greetings from Vancouver Island.
