Tom – I am still recovering from a pretty bad table saw kick-back incident of 3 years ago
and just now got the clearance from my doctor to work around big woodworking tools.
I just started back on my lathe last week and it was a white knuckle ride all the way.
I agree – keep a very tight grip on the hand tools until you figure out what works for you
and your style of turning.
you don’t have to be afraid of the machine – but you DO have to respect it !!
looking forward to following your progress.
