My new Lathe *PIC*

Wayne Kuhn
>here is my new set-up.
Grizzly G0462. Along with my grinder, buffing set-up and $45 Penn State chuck. The grinder & buffer get moved to my bench 2 steps away wilst I'm turning.
I got the griz in late January and have ben giving it a workout.
Yesterday I Turned a 27lb, 12" rnd x 7" thick hunk of hickory (acording to my neighbor, but I believe it is poplar)on a 3" faceplate fron Don Pencil. This has been my largest piece to date. I was little worried but it did not skip a beat. Yes the lathe is bolted to the floor. I Was working on the inside when I noticed ring/wind shake. oh well, on to the next piece. Just thought I would share my Joy.
