Well I've been at it a couple of years now and my tool collection has grown a little. I've gotten a decent Ridgid contractors table saw, 13" Porter Cable thickness planer, 10" Hitachi miter saw, Porter Cable combo router and table. Also a Shopsmith Mark V with a bandsaw, joiner, drill press, 12" disc sander, 4" belt sander, 1" belt sander, and lathe. Well, after using the lathe on the Shopsmith for a little while, I guess you could say I am hooked on turning. That is the one thing that I look forward to the most in my shop. So much so that my wife got me a new toy for Christmas. A new Rikon 70-220vsr lathe. Yea!! It has a 12.5" swing over the ways and I believe 20" length. Been making small things mostly. Bowls, pens, boxes, bottle stoppers, razors and such. Loving it!
