Hey Harley's Dad, I live in Tunica! Shucks, I was born in Clarksdale and still visit Clarksdale regularly (I have kin folks there)!

How long have you been pen turning?

Ken, You live in Blue Springs. Do you work at the Toyota plant? I just returned home a year ago from living in Japan for the past 26 years, and the last 7 in Toyota City. I lived a neighborhood filled with Toyota mid level management and engineers, and I speak and read and write fair Japanese.

I still haven't got my shop up and running. My lathe is together but I don't have a table assembled to put on to turn anything. And I can't find half my turning tools as they are sell boxed up. It seems like there is a pen turner in New Albany. Oh yes, Tim Seger. He goes by tseger on this forum.

Click here for the last thread that he started, but he has posted to other threads since that thread.

I live in Hattiesburg, and there is another turner in South Mississippi near the coast as well. Have yet to meet up with him though I know he does bowl working and such.

Anyone else in the area? I'm wanting to take a class or 5 with someone far more experienced than myself if possible. I'd like to work into turning kitless pens so I don't have to buy kits all the time.

I've never turned one myself, but I don't think people turn kitless pens for purposes of saving money.

Maybe not, but i'm not able to turn anything unless I order a bunch of kits. It seems like ordering clips and nibs would be a little more cost effective than 20 dollar kits 10 at a time. I could be wrong. Either way i'd like to learn.

I'm not far from Corinth, only I'm in Tennessee, Adamsville to be precise, we have a North Alabama - Mississippi and Tennessee Local chapter, There are quite a few turners in Northern Alabama but only one or two of us in Tennessee, and you would be welcome to join our informal little group. Once in a while we meet over at Redstone Arsenal in the Hobby shop to turn pens for the troops. and occasionally at one of the members shops in Alabama.
