    Show me the Cookies!!

    Forgive me spinny guys, as I usually don't visit your land much. That is about to change, I hope.

    I picked this up yesterday. Wanted to wait until Larry was well north of me before I posted about it.



    He threw in some tools, they have life in them yet, so I can't turn them down.



    This was also in the deal. Really don't need another planer, but what the hay.



    Now all this talk of, "Come to the dark side, we have cookies." I still have yet to find the cookies in this thing
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Pretty nice score you got there Steve!

    Heck, Turning is just another good way to ruin some nice wood. I can butcher wood up pretty good both ways! Keeps the house warm in the winter time though...

    Hey Steve; The 1st thing you are going to have to learn is where the tailstock goes in relation to the headstock. It looks to me you have the tailstock on the wrong end!

    I'd love to have that little sucker. Mine doesn't have the VS on it, but I just use it as a permanent buffing station.

    You will definitely have some fun with that baby, no question!

    Looks like Mack is right Steve. How about if I meet you in Scottsburg to take possession of that spinny thing just to protect you from yourself? My conscience would bother me if you fall into the vertex. I'm not a turner either, but I will go to great lengths to protect a friend.

    Ha, I just stuck it together real quick for the picture. The only thing I bought was the nova chuck. I have to go back and get a couple face plates he found. It's good to be part of a new club

    Mack, I think it is setup for outboard turning. Steve, don't try that yet. Turn the head around, chuck up a piece of wood and slide the tail stock up to it and make a bonker, the cookies will come. That look like a nice one

    Why did I open this thread?!

    A couple weeks ago I was in Woodcraft to pick up a couple items. While there, I stopped and fondled all of the nice JET mini lathes they had on display. Luckily money is too tight right now or I may have had some 'splainin' to do later that evening.
