    New member hi

    A quickie thread to say hello.

    From the south of the UK and totally new to wood turning and pens.

    Good with tools but not used a lathe until now. Have made parts for bikes and
    custom bits for cars but only basic stuff.

    G/F came home with a lathe for herself a few weeks ago and Iíve got hooked!
    Made a few pens but far from perfect and I need to learn a lot .

    Employed by the NHS for over 25 years as an EMT 999

    Look forward to the forums. Iím an admin on a Nissan forum so good with rules lol

    Welcome Graham.
    Any questions just ask.
    That’s how we’ve all learnt.
    Happy pen turning.

    Hello Graham welcome to the forum.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."
