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.

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.

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.

I would like to also get into the fine work of turning. I also have a little itty bitty WT lathe and a old craftsman. I am thinking that with the limited space I have ,a garden shed the WT might work. But of course no bowl turning can be done on the WT.

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.
