    HI
    think i should introduce myself. I recently inherited a lathe from my father. I did some turning with him years ago and looking to try my hand at it again.
    Probably going to start with pens and see where it goes. Recently gave up a 20year career in boat building (bloody costumers) and hoping this is a way for me to keep working with wood in my spare time.

    If you are not careful, Ewan, pen turning can eat up a lot of your spare time and your spare cash as well.
    But have fun anyway
