I haven't done any turning since February. I moved twice and got married and had to build a garage and rebuild a garage into a workshop. Just got the building done and moved everything in. I got the major tools set up and now starting the mess of emptying all the boxes and figuring out where to put stuff.
As I was doing that I got an order for some ornaments from the Governors wife. Can't pass that up so I managed to find enough of my lathe tools and sharpeners to get to work.
So here are the first turnings from 2015. I will be doing a bunch more.
When I had a computer melt down I had to redo a lot of these accounts. This site simply would not let me use my old name.
I had wondered about this.
I understand that the site would not let you create a new account with your old name.
I don't understand why a computer meltdown would prevent you from using the old account, though.
If you'd lost/forgotten password(s) in the meltdown (been there, done that), the site should email you a new one, no?
I had problems on several sites and simply had to change my name. they would not let me in and I couldn't find humans to talk to for the answers.
I sat through a demo with Jimmy Clewes the other day and he said that spindle turning was the best thing you could do to improve your turning skills. I agree 100 percent.
If you contact the administrator or a mod on this site, they should be able to do one of two things:
Merge your new account into your original one -- OR --
I'm not sure which way they might decide to go on this one. I think that banning is the preferred route because it is less work.
(For due consideration, I can make a favorable recommendation to the head honcho).
