Well, you guys just got a new newbie

Recommended Posts

I'm going to have to think of myself as a turner in training, coz' I just bought a PM 3520B  Tricked out with   some  options.


Delivery in a few days.



Now I gotta think about tooling.  My current crop of lathe tools is abysmal.


I have two nice gouges, but the rest of my kit is all of a piece from a box of tools that I got free and were not worth much more than I paid.  No name junk sold to people who dunno what they are doing.

Man, 20" swing! You'll be cranking out some beautiful bowls! I personally like the longer bed, too. More turning options.

Congrats Cliff, we'll newbie together, I am aching to get back to my lathe after our home gets put back together, till then I have been keeping my eye out for the logs on the side of the roads during the course of my travels in my day job. Can't wait to see the pics of the new lathe.

Wow that is a nice way to jump into turning. Like Lew we need to see pictures of the new addition and look forward to the new turnings you turn out.

Yah.  It's been a while in the making.  I got this itty bitty little Walker Turner lathe,  that I'll be selling, that I have used but never enjoyed.    I want to get into turning  with organic shapes and off beat things.

 I figure this and  a set of Thompson tools and I'll be crankin' out work  better 'n Malcom Tibbits in less than an afternoon.

 Maybe even before I get it plugged in.
