I'M PROUD TO ANNOUNCE MY 80th BIRTHDAY TODAY!

This is my Birthday Gift. I'm presently in the process of building a bench for it.

I'll be posting it when it's completed

I had to get this new lathe, because I have some larger wood from a Black Walnut I had to have taken down in our

yard.

I'd like to make some larger things with the wood. I couldn't let it go to the chipper!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Addendum:

I dwelled on wether to buy a new lathe at age 80, but I remembered my 90 year old neighbor. He painted his stucco house all by himself at that age, so I said to myself, "GO FOR IT"!

Happy Birthday, I have that same lathe and am sure you will be pleased with it. I still need to get the extention bed for mine, but I have had no complants with it. Bought mine as a floor model and it was missing the wrench, Called the folks at Rikon… they over nighted a new wrench to me.

Hi Dick,

Wow, that is awesome to be 80 years young and to still be working the wood. I am proud to be your woodworking buddy. Happy Birthday

Hi! all of you LUMBERJOCK FRIENDS!

I'm awful sorry about this delayed THANK YOU, but the day after my birthday my ISP modem burned out, so I decided to change my provider. The only problem with that was I had to wait a week to have it installed, but I'm very happy with the results. Our local cable company is having a special for 9.95/Month + free installation 12 Mbps speed, superfast.

WAITING THAT WEEK (aout 10 days) SEEMED LIKE FOREVER!

BARB & I LOVE YOU ALL!
