So take a little break from the mobile home and turn a stopper or a small bowl or a handle for a tool, something quick.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I feel for you, I don't get near the time behind the lathe I would like to either between work and kids. Sometimes you just need to make a little room in your schedule, rough out a bowl one night, sand the next, etc.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I'm working 12 hour nights 7 days a week, or actually about 13 hour nights when it's all said and done. I know your pain.

I feel ya. I got a new chuck this week and a new shipment of wood. Been looking forward to the weekend so I could play. Thurs evening I reinjured and old back injury and now cant get down the stairs to the shop. Ive been eating Vicodin to ease the pain and could probably go down the steps but I'm not so sure turning while in a daze is such a good idea!!

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!

I bought my lathe about 7 or 8 years ago and have only used
it half a dozen times because of pain. I last went into my
workshop/shed sometime in November. I take 5 different
pills for pain as well as wearing a Morphine type patch, plus
a rub on pain relieving Gel. I only sleep for up to 2 hours
at a time before I have to get back up, this means I'm always
tired and still in chronic pain.
