    Need a turner with a BIG lathe!!

    We are trying to find a turner in or near Missouri who can do a BIG job - is there someone out there who can turn something 8 to 10 feet long??

    Please respond here or PM me if you can or know someone who can..

    here's a guy that turns pretty large stuff...but i think he's in the dallas area. i forward it because of the size of the turning even though he's not in your immediate area.
