    Welcome! Mike. Now that you have started bowl turning, you won't have any time to do anything else.

    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.

    Welcome Mike. With a name like Turner, I think your lathe affliction was destined.

    And don't worry about that Larry guy. He's good people, but I think he was spun around a lot as a kid, so now he has issues with things that go around and around.

    Welcome Mike! Watch that vortex stuff---it can make you dizzy when you watch all the money fly out the door.
