So, Well then.. Am I gonna be the only one without a lathe??

I can hear it now…. “But Honey, all the other guys have lathes!” And She’ll answer, “If all the other guys jumped off the pier would you do it too?”

(I’m not brave enough to answer out loud, “Depends on how warm the water is!”)

No lathe here either, but someday perhaps. That looks like a good one you bought.

No lathe for me either, well not a working one anymore. Let me know how the HF one is, there cheap enough that I can pick one up soon if it’s worth the money.
