    New Lathe

    Well I finally got my Jet Mini out of the box and set up. Hopefully I will have my lathe tools soon so I can try it out. I have signed up for a pen turning class at Woodcraft and I am trying to wait til then as I know nothing about a lathe but I am getting the fever. It will be my first time ever on a lathe so wish me luck.

    Your really going to enjoy that lathe, and all the possibilities to spend money on tools as well I now have three lathes so its become a slippery slope, just ask some of the others in the forum.
    enjoy!

          I hope you will enjoy the class as much as I did mine! I did not even own a lathe when I went to a pen turning class. I just liked the idea of making a pen. Little did I know...

                Ken, I thought you were smarter than that! I'm disappointed. ;&gt
                You're lost, there's no way out now. Enjoy.
