Welcome back Phil.  That box dulcimer build was spectacular.  I sure hope that you get your mojo back and stick around to share with us!

Where are you located at?  I see lots of woodworking tools & machinery at auction around the country, some of which is pretty reasonable.

Thanks for the Welcome back it feels Like I have come home. Cal i am in S/W Indiana. AS soon as I get all the boxes out of the garage I will be sitting up a new shop.  I already have a list of things I want to build. Like a couple of Cabinets for the pantry, wife thinks she needs a place to put can goods. Also thinking about really pushing my limits to try a guitar build, may cheat and go with a kit for the first one. get and Ideal what to do and get measurements from it.

Well Phil I never knew ya, but I do now and welcome is the key word. Don't feel like a stranger and take lots of pictures. Like the guys already told you the garage and auctions are rife with tool deals . John is so taken with his SS he is trying to get everyone to get one .....well I went thru that want and with the lathes I have now the SS could not do that job for me.

Hey, Phil is the first woodworker I ever recommended one too! :lol:

The SS is definitely not for everyone, but for around 500 bucks you can be up and running with a second hand one. I spoke with a luthier a couple months ago, he came to my shop to buy something, he saw my SS and stated he had one too, builds his classical guitares on his. His guitares go for around 7 grand or so. He is the owner of Baranik Guitares. 

But I digress, folks either love em or hate em. Do your research if considering an SS.

Phil, I am relatively new here.  No matter what happens to you, you are a great contributor to this group and we need your experience and expertise.  I am also an SS owner and I love it for what I do.  I don't do extensive turning like some other folks here, but for making spindles and pens, no problems.  Like John said, it is a great tool for a really good price and you can do many things in a small space for a small investment.  Each to his own.  

I am so glad you have returned and remember we need you here.  Looking forward to whatever you do and look forward to your input on situations.  I have a friend in Evansville, IN.

Has anyone hear from this wonderful man lately? I enjoyed his topics.

@Larry Buskirk, did you ever get around to building a Dulcimer?

 

This topic brought over from the archives.

No I didn't John, that's one of those projects still on my to do list. :DayDreaming:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
