New guy from Dayton, OH

Was just alerted to this site from a friend. I moved to Dayton about 4 years ago from a small town north of here - Wapakoneta, OH. While in Wapak, my wife & I had done quite a bit of woodwork while building our house. I was blessed to have a great 30' x 50' pole building to work out of. After moving here, I've got a great house, but all of the tools are in the basement. So, I've taken up smaller scale work - turning. Really feel like I'm getting good with pens, now need to learn larger turning techniques & projects. I've got several pieces of very nice equipment to sell, but know that I can't post them yet, so I'm just here introducing now.

The last place I lived, had a 30' x 50' workshop. This house I have everything in the basement. I've got two daughters who are growing up and spending a lot more family time with them. My career is taking more and more time. Bottom line - don't see the opportunity to use these tools coming to me in the (near) future. Would rather see them go to a good home and get some use. There's a LOT of life in them, and it stinks just seeing them sit there. Now, I've picked up turning and am doing a lot of smaller scale work.

P.S. - Like the signature.

I believe the store is still there, but I think it is under a new name now. Not sure. Shopped there many times growing up, and in high school worked in a department store two doors down from it.

Are you close to Kenosha, WI?

Thanks.

I understand about the job and family.
All I have to consider these days is the job, wife and the dog.
