Hi bob, Mark, Gilbear and everyone else yes i have been busy and i do have a woodturning lathe.
Found out in April that the was going to be a layoff so i retired in September.

Hi Roy,

Good to hear from you. You sound like all is well and you are getting along well with the 1442. I am currently studying that model for a possible upgrade. How have you liked it?

Congrats on the craft show. Sure wish we could see some of your wares.

Hi Bob :
I only have about 15 min. riht now but if you are interested in upgrading to a largerl lathe (mid-size) take a look atthe October issue of WoodWorkers Journal ,page64 it reviews 7 mid-size lathes. Overall the Jet 14*42Vs came up #1.

So far i have had a 14lb. hunk of brazilan cherry on it and with the slow rpm it ran just fine. After it was balanced with turning, then brought the rpms. up.

Anyway Iam glad Dolores said make room and get the bigger lathe.
see you soon and take care. Roy
