    You don't want that lathe, Ben. It's a piece of junk.

    Send it to me and I'll dispose of it for ya.

    I may be lost but I'm making good time!

    Ben congrats on the lathe and happy birthday. May you have many years of turning Ben. Now get the dang thing dirty.

    Hey Ben, I moved the thread, like you asked.

    Boy that looks like a nice lathe, I'm sure you will get a lot of use out of it, you are one lucky kid to have a great dad like you do

    Congrats to dad as well, seems he is doing a fine job

    Ben's doin' the Happy Dance right about now. He'll get back to turning after his feet touch the ground.

    Congrats young man, and congrats to mom and dad for raising a pretty decent whippersnapper who deserves a good lathe.
