    Hey from Concord

    Meet a member of this site that suggested me signing up. Past history of working as a machinist and have a small shop where I have 2 metal lathes, a 12" Atlas and a 12" Shenwai that at present time is scattered all over my shop. I've been making tobacco pipes for several years and am also making pens now. Want to learn bowls and vases if time permits.
    Working 2nd shift will not allow me to get in on the new member chat, but with my bad sense of humor this might be a blessing. Anyway, just wanted to say Hi!
    Basil

  2. The following 3 users say Thank You to Basil :

    Welcome from Union County. Glad to have a person knowledgeable about machining around. It is on my bucket list to learn more about it.
