Hey Jocks.

I have a Smithy ShopSmith that my grandfather gave me. I finally fired up the lathe function a couple of days ago. I’m hooked. This is my third turning attempt.

I’ve never had a lesson, I just watched some guys on YouTube and decided to go at it. So any advice you want to offer would be greatly appreciated.

My recommendation? Join this AAW chapter in Port St. Lucie. Just around the corner from you… I’m sure they’re a great bunch of guys willing to help a new turner get started.

Turning is great fun. Keep at it.

I believe you may have a good feel for turning. Keep up the good work.
