Hello Charlie, happy that you've joined the fun. I did the same things and set up a complete shop before retirement. Had the income then, but couldn't replace those tools with retirement income now. Now my spare cash goes for materials.

Welcome to the forum. Three lathes? One for each operation of turning???? Looking forward to seeing some of your projects. I retired in 2009 and never regretted it. Well, for two or three days.

Welcome to the forum Charles. I also live in east central Indiana. I have been retired 10 years now and never looked back. Enjoy it. I am not a Chevy man but have a 66 Mustang for a hobby.

Welcome, Charles. You are in the right place, and we're glad to have you. I have more vehicles than I can afford to keep insured! I have a 2003 Chevy dually left over from my Limousin raising days -70,000 miles. I usually have to charge the (new) batteries in order to drive it some. My pride is a 1999 Jaguar 4 door sedan - 60,000 miles. Have to keep a trickle charger on it! I love driving as long as I can drive slowly and smell the flowers. We have a 2002 Toyota wagon - runs great - and 2017 Toyota SUV. As I said, too much. My wife lectures me every time the insurance bill arrives! Again, WELCOME!

I have a '92 Dodge Dakota long bed with a great running V6. I've kept it in top shape, still easily passes tight smog test. White paint always peels on this year's models, but I constantly get offers. Not going to sell it though, it's really nice new tires, brakes, tuned up by a really good mechanic. Don't do much car repair anymore, especially on the Camry Hybrid. 700 volt system electrocuted a few mechanics until Toyota added cautions to its mechanics training. Heavy, quiet and smooth, a pleasure to travel and the batteries keep getting cheaper. Older American cars are appealing, but Toyotas work too well to switch brands. Wife crashed our 2007 Corolla last year, and we still got $6700 for it from the insurance, about half its original cost. Used to repair my own cars when I was younger, but today I can afford to have it done. Your truck is a beauty.
