introduction

Hi I would like to introduce myself my name is Dan but go under the user name of Helgi, why? well let's just say it's a long story.
After working in the pulp and paper for the last 25 some years as a maintenance painter, now retired I did find a new hobby I hope , pen turning. So to accommodate my lovely member of the family also know as the war department we moved to Saskatchewan, for all you people who trying to figure out where in god's name is that, well in canada and as for trying to do anything as to turning don't even think about it . The temperature is now- 33 degrees celcius and with the wind it feels like -46 below so there are warnings all over my computer and frostbite will setin on exposed skin in approx 6---8 minutes. So I think that we might go back to vancouver island where we came from.
But not untill I got all my goodies together so I can at least try this turning venture out, when it is warmer.
