My name is David (not far from Carlisle) and I wanted to drop a line to introduce myself to the forum (pointed in the forums direction by Doubleboost, so many thanks again for the guidance John).
I am quite a new enthusiast to the machining community. A couple of years ago I purchased a Myford Super 7 with the intention of learning how to turn. I am actually a Mechanical Engineer by trade however the years of college did not really get the hands on experience I have always wanted. So the best way was to learn through my own means. Until this point I have really only been dabbling with the Lathe and watching countless videos & reading books to see if I can find some inspiration along the way.
My intention is to progress into model engineering while using the turning ability to make parts for my bikes.
I look forward to starting to contribute and hopefully keep my daft questions to a minimum!
