Default Hi from somewhere south of Oklahoman city

I just had a 24x30 shop built last Sep. This last Jan I told the wife that after 32.5 years I have had it at work and I needed to retire ! She told me OK but get the tools you want for your shop first. I have wanted to try turning so I got a nova lathe. Man what a mistake that was lol now all I want to do is play on the lathe.

So it looks like I will retire in Dec.

Looks like this site has a lot of great information and being new to truning I need all the information I can get.

Welcome Art. Lawton is south of Oklahoma City. Met my wife there 43 years ago. My favorite place when I was in the service.

Over the years I have learned that there are only three types of people in this world....those who can count and those who can't.

Welcome to the IAP from somewhere south of Oklahoma City (San Antonio TX)!!
Congratulations on the retirement decision and now it sounds like you are on the way to a new form of "work" called happiness.
Shop space sounds enviable - hope you can fill the space with lots of nice tools. Good choice on the lathe.
SOMETIMES I PRETEND TO BE NORMAL... but it gets boring.....so I go back be being me.

The word 'listen' contains the same letters as the word 'silent. Is that like <<<<<ZIP IT<<<<<<
