Thanks Jim but it was a hell of a job to get them legs back off didn't have a problem with the ones in the oak but in the pine. I was there with a hammer and chisel clipping them off had two of them. Must say my new shop has good sound proofing at 3:30 am didn't wake no one in the house and neighbors didn't have the cops come. The old place I would have been my car port and everyone up. hahaha

Glenmore, I do hope that you have kept the pieces that you cut off, one day you will hopefully return to good health and need to increase the height of the bench!

Way to go, Glenmore.

When can we see some more of your beautiful pens?

Thanks Harry and James it is a joy to turn on it now. With the adjustments I did with the stand I really have in a perfect height and position for turning.

Bernie you got that right I'm right back into it sold 1 pen today again. Did 13 euros, and them new roadsters 12 of them today. Got my blanks set up for 25 slim pens hope to get them done tomorrow. Did some cutting boards made them out of the 3" plank cut them down to 1 1/2" sticks 2 of them are 12" long and the 1 that was left is 10" so don't know if I'll be back in the shop tomorrow though I think I over did it a little today.

Listen to your doctor Glenmore. Don't want him saying you won't be in the shop for good while. My brother did that in his shop. Doc told him no more for 6 months. Work safe.
