Turning Archive 2004
Mark S. in Chalfont, PA
Yesterday we got the new Jet midi lathe from toolking for $215 including shipping.
As soon as I got home from work, my 15 year old (Bryan) had me set it up for him. Took a scrap piece of poplar and started to show how to mount it on the lathe.
What could be better than seeing my son wanting to be a part of the woodworking scene. I can tell that he will be hooked on turning as I am with flat working.
The pen kit that was recommended will be ordered soon. In the meantime, I ordered a complete pen kit from the Griz (cheap and a quick way to get him going).
Thanks to all the WC folks that offered all the great advise.
