Re: Who are you - RobertM - 02-21-2008

Hi I'm Robert and I'm a toolaholic!
I'm 51 and have two lathes a jet mini and a Powermatic 4224..... I know I know I went form mini to Maxi. What can I say I got a great deal on it.
I do mostly flat work but I been getting more and more into turning. I can see why this is all a lot of people do it's addicting! I've been doing a few bowls and one project I did had a lot of spindles so far everything has turned out pretty good, maybe a little smaller than it started to but ok anyway.
This forum has been a wealth of information for me and I really enjoy seeing what everyone has done.

Re: Who are you - Grey Mountain - 02-25-2008

My name is Lonnie, and I've been turning about 25 years. Grey Mountain was my great-grandfather, who was a Mexican captive of the Comanches. He was captured around 1850 as a young lad of about seven, and spent the rest of his life with the Comanches, eventually being adopted into the tribe. I proudly use his name as my signature.

Joe Pack. Real name, not someone else's. Turned a log into a toothpick, repeated process, then started making pens, keychains, etc....about 1,500 so far (FAR more keychains than pens), but I'm still working on it. People buy them (particularly the keychains), so I keep making them. 18 years old from the neck up, 57 years old from the neck to the top of the knees, 200 years old from the knees down.

Re: Who are you - Andrew - 02-27-2008

Hi All. Andy Bacchi is my name. My wife and I have been in Vermont for 35 years now, and raised our three kids here. I'm a computer system programmer by design, and a tree herder by choice. They provide heat in winter, sweet syrup in spring and beauty all the time.

I've spent lots of time tending to the trees that share my space and I've even named a few of them. Gratefully, a tree's pace is easy to keep up with.
