Default Hello from Cowtown

Hello y'all! For the last year my 12yo daughter has been asking (pleading) for a lathe so she could start pen turning. We attended a couple of demonstrations at our local Rockler and last month during their "Garage Sale" I finally broke down and bought a Jet 1221VS. The only issue I encountered was that after getting it setup and we turned our first pens I quickly realized I was an idiot for not buying one sooner.

I was told about this site from one of the guys we met at a pen turning demonstration. We both looking forward to many more years of turning.

Agreed, off to a phenomenal start! GREAT WORK!

Sean, I think many here have found that their kids do a great job, and sometimes better than their Dads, or Moms.

I lived in CowTown '75-'81 and remember the heatwave of '80. Memorable times! Still visit once in a while.

YOU ROCK! Your pen designs look like one of a kind originals to me.

Have an 8 and 11 year old grandsons. Both are afraid of simple power tools like scroll saw and lathe. You keep up the great work. Can't pay them to be in my shop except when they want something, usually batteries or me to fix something.

Keep it up,

Thanks dad!
