I plan to start attending the meetings at Rockler for the Southern Maine WoodTurners on the first Wednesday of every month. From the sound of it, it should be a good time. I've never been in any clubs or other organizations before, but this seems like a good place to start!
Thanks for the good wishes on the shop-built lathe, I'll likely need them! So far, it's gone pretty well though. The I-beam has been sand-blasted, cut to length and now is at the machine shop for the top flat section to be machined true.
It still has a long way to go in reality, but I need to start somewhere!
You also say your a small business owner. What type of business?
I saw you were in Maine riding out Irene.
I'm in Windham, a small business owner and love turning.
Do you go to any club meetings?
I'm watching your thread on your home-made lathe.
