Default The borrowed shop

I am calling this the borrowed shop as most of it is coming from stuffed that I borrowed from my mother in law's shop.

I borrowed her lathe, scroll saw, grinder, and two roughing gouges. I picked up an 8 inch drill press from HF and a pen press off of ebay. I bungied the pick from my shopvac to the lathe to act as a quasi dust collector. Due to budget, I am using a heavy duty blade on the scroll saw for cutoffs.

Please excuse the mess around the tools, I had to squeeze them in around the junk and other other toys (i.e. R/C stuff) in the garage.

There's nothing wrong with borrowed. 8 years ago I borrowed my friend's drill press to get started in pen making. The drill press is still in my shop! Congrats on 'your' shop.

I was going to buy the smaller lathe from HF, but my mother in law did not want me spending the money if I was not going to stay with wood turning after this project is over. Especially with another future woodworker on the way.

She also lent me two Sorby tools but I feel bad if I use them and screw up sharpening them, so I got myself the HSS set from HF. This way I screw up my own tools.
