  1. LOL @lewyea they trigger VERY VERY easily and remember NEVER let anyone on your phone and or computer EVER. I've been playing with the PCH guys lately they are fun and the Scamason guys they are fun tech support they are a bit on the tricky side I have to let them onto my VM virtual machine LOL. I have some goodies on there as well LOL. I can spend literally all day on the phone LOL. and I have many many phone numbers. LOL
  2. @lewScam baiting what that basically means is calling a phone scammer and wasting their time so they are not steeling from a potential victim. So it could possibly saving someone from getting money stolen from them. It can get quite interesting but I've been enjoying it and its a lot of fun. I had to hunker down and learn a ton of stuff about IT and I'm still learning about it.
  3. Hey guys sorry haven't been around much hope everybody is doing well. I thought Id just throw this in general for now mods guys feel free to throw this where ever. I haven't been doing too much with wood working lately since the price of wood has pretty much sky rocketed through the roof. But I am alive and well. I have also discovered the wonderful world of scam baiting so I've been doing that as well. So it's kept me busy but I hope everybody is doing great and I hope to get back to turning soon. Cheers.
  4. So I had a friend ask me to make her a few bowls and I obliged to. I've never had an opportunity until now to try out maple burl so I bought a blank of it which is extremely expensive. How ever I'm kind of surprised that it turns rather well. Although I don't get the nice long shavings with it when turning. Either way I'm enjoying it so far this is a work in progress project I just have to wait for some tips to get here and more sand paper to arrive but yes I'm enjoying working with this. The walls have a few indentations in it but that's perfectly fine I like the rough and used look that it gives to the wood. Gives it a lot more character.
  5. GOOD MORNING sorry I've been moderately afk from the forums just been handling things with PTSD and other such nonsense also taking some me time and been very heavily computer gaming sort of taking a moderate break from turning. I've got a lot on my plate at the moment but I will still be around here this site is a great place to be and share work and knowledge. As far as the stuff on my plate I've taken on to make 4 bowls. I was going to laminate poplar but I decided that that wouldn't have worked too well for what I want to do because of possible gaps in the lamination. So I've almost got 2 bowls completely made and I've got another 2 to go. I'm thinking about elm and purple heart for the next one. I am planning on getting a CBN wheel for my grinder and a couple of other things as well so I can sharpen the bowl gouge. I think I messed up the angle of it a bit. How ever I will learn how to sharpen properly hopefully. I've got a bunch of sanding to do over the next couple of days and staining.
  6. Another nicely put together post @lew sorry guys I've been semi absent with out leave on here lately.

  8. Finally bought myself a decent bowl gouge. I went with the same company. Robert Sorby. This one to be exact Robert Sorby Deep Flute Bowl Gouge 1/2 inch HHS Extra Long Length Handle Overall Length 26 inches 842XLH-1/2. Bought it off amazon. I also bought a couple round blanks from Got Wood LLC so I can actually give the gouge a good go. I will probably wind up trying to learn how to do an Irish Grind for the gouge itself just because of how versatile that grind is. But yea I can't wait to try it out.
