I will jump in my name is Steve Massie age 63 been retired since November 2009. I think from my user Name you can tell what industry I was in. I was a Product Manager with one of the largest Architectural Aluminum Manufactures in the World working in the Window and Sliding Glass Door Division.

I have never turned a piece of wood in my life but want to start making pens etc. for gifts. I have had a ShopSmith since 1982 which came with their standard 5 piece chisel set. Not sure what else I will need, but this is what I have right now.

I am usually am at the Hand Tools forum and love WoodNet. I have visited here several times and have asked a few questions which people have been very helpful. Now I am ready to jump in and mess a few things up.

Great thread and obviously the best forum going.


PS: Once I get started I will be back asking more dumb questions.

Hey there!!!

Re: Who are you - Cape Cod - 05-04-2012

I'm John. Early 50s, married, 2 college-age girls, and 2 dawgs.

I'm new to turning. Just got a Delta 46-460 VS. So I venture up stairs into the daylight a little more now.

I am a self-employed machinist by trade. I work out of my garage.

Tough part about that is the Delta is sitting there staring at me all day long while I'm trying to earn a living.

On the plus side, I have the equipment and know-how to build my own tools and fixtures. I am in the process of building a "Wolverine" jig. Next up is a steadyrest.

Name is Richard Wile, do not hide behind some obtuse moniker. Been turning for 20+ years mostly for round bits to support my projects, sometimes for my mental health (good and bad).

Like this thread.
