My "NEW" Toys

I've had a VERY good weekend. Me and my family took a little trip out of town yesterday and this is what I came home with. My wife was behind me all the way. Sounds like I have some nice turning in my future.

I would kill for a JET lathe like that, but unfortunately, my quest for a new lathe continues as most major manufacturers are not available in Canada. Great looking lathe and accessories. The chainsaw is sweet too.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I must be missing something - why the Oneway adapter for the Talon chuck (which I have and think is great) when you have a Nova chuck?

I've had that same lathe for a little over a year now...you will love it. You'll probably lose the top cage...started driving me crazy from day one.

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

The talon adapter will go on my Talon chuck. I just bought a Nova with adapter since they were on sale.

The Stihl is a MS290 with a 20" bar. 56.5cc. I got the chisel chain on it and it will eat through wood like butter.

I love the picture of the box in the back of the truck. Few people take that many pictures of the delivery of their children. Woodworkers are a strange bunch (myself included). Hope you enjoy the new toys.

It was fun getting the beast out of the truck. I ended up having to crawl/squeese up in the truck and unbolt the brackets for the camper and remove the camper first. I then removed the top of the box and took the lathe out a piece at a time. That thing is HEAVY. It's done and my back is glad.
