Hi Lou P, welcome to the forum, don't matter what size you turn as long as you turn, and you enjoy it. Hopefully you might pass on a few bits as you have been turning for awhile, we can all learn, theres always the odd hint and way to do something better faster easier Always something to give out. Drop the odd pic of what you turn, if your anygood at tutorials drop one of them in to, from making tools to going and get me a nice mug of coffee keep asking the wife to bring coffee to the workshop for me, anyway hope you get something from the forum most of the guys here are okay, and the others are just misrable sods that won't bring me coffee ..LB

When you do post a pic or two, tell us, please, about your best moment as a turner, and your worst experience as a turner. My best was getting the first project off the lathe. The worst was blowing up a pen before I even had the blank round. super glue notwithstanding, 3/4 of the blank disappeared in about 1/120th of a second. Learning good technique through small projects is much better than losing a finger, though, I guess. Still have all eight of mine, and both thumbs, too.
