    Las Vegas

    Hi All long time since posting but have been really busy with work. I am finally heading off on a vacation to Vegas with the wife for a week ( first time to Vegas ever for either of us). I was wondering if anyone here has any info on any good wood working / turning supply stores, flea markets, pawn shops there? Not that I have lots of room to bring things back but would like to see what is availible ( never know what treasures might be found). Any tips on things that we must see and things to avoid.

    The Woodworker's emporium is the whole deal so far as I know. Not much different from Rockler. If you have a car, wanna drive an hour west and I'll show you a 'real' shop, with stuff for sale, as I downsize into a motorhome with shop trailer?

    Can't guess why but I bet they have more pawn shops than any other city in the states. I haven't been there for years and years. Like to go again. There is lots to see even if you don't gamble. It worth taking a trip out to the dam also.

    Been in there once last year - it's nice. It's about like any other rockler/woodcraft but the people are quite friendly.

    Too bad you weren't going in July next year - AWFS is a neat thing to do around then

    Las Vegas is someplace I never get sick of. Probably been at least 18-20 times. Mostly for work but 7 or 8 times for vacation. I don't drink much and break out in a sweat if I lose more than $20.00 in the casinos There is just so much to see and do. Tons and tons of pawn shops.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
