Hello Edgwick One,

I already replied to your first post, but  welcome!

If you have any photos of your lathe, especially the threading instruction plate, I'd love to see them.

Regards, Matthew

Welcome from the other side of the country.

I second what Jim said and I'm down the bottom bit of this side just before you get wet, so you're welcome is covered from the Eastern side. Jim's a tad higher from memory - and possibly warmer at this time of year. This is a great place to hang out - enjoy, and above all have fun.

   Hi
             Welcome to the forum, don't forget to post pictures of your lathe when it is finished, it sounds very interesting.
