I have an electric heater, and also when it is really cold a propane heater I use. If I can go out about 20 minutes before I am ready to work, it is not too bad, but still one day I will have a fully heated shop.... or live where I do not need a fully heated shop. lol
My shop is cold also and I have an oil heater going while I'm in there. Hopefully we will get a nice wood stove to go there and that will help a lot. I only get an hour or two of turning in the shop on these colder days. I'm home and will go back to the shop in a week or so after my stuff I ordered come. I'm going to try polymer clay pens just for fun. Maybe I'll turn a couple more bowls. Found my fingerless gloves so that will help when it comes to handling that chuck on a cold morning... Fay
I feel for you. I can't deal with cold any more. Since I've been a full-time wheeler, it seems as though I'm more sensitive to cold. If I had to deal with what you you and Fay have to deal with, I'd have to stop for the Winter. It's bad enough to go out on the back porch where the mitre box is screwed to the rail to cut a couple of pen blanks.
