Good evening all :)
i've been lurking here for quite a while now and i think it seems a good place for me to register
and see if i can join in somehow.
not done much woodturning really, i did try it out a few years ago and had to much to do otherwise to keep trying to get
started properly, anyway to cut my waffle a bit i decided to buy a small lathe just over a year ago to try again then
bad luck bought me a bleed on the brain in march this year so that stopped me in my tracks lol.
now i am sort of getting over it a bit i thought time to try again and join this forum and maybe learn a bit more although getting a bit old for it :?
don't want to bore you all so will cut now :|
