Another hello from Canada (west coast)
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:03:43 PM »
I have been surfing through the older posts and really found them enjoyable (learned a lot also).  I have a taig mill (small but accurate) and have just upgraded from two older lathes to an almost new 10x22 King Canada (pretty much the same as the Grizzly 10x22.  It is a real treat to use as now I know when I am making mistakes - with the other two lathes I was never sure.  Also have a 4x6 horizontal/vertical band saw and a lot of decent wood working tools.

Am in the process of adapting tooling to the new lathe as it is very likely to be a "keeper".  Most of what I do is fix various household items and tools and make some tooling for the mill and lathe.  My woodworking has been more "practical" in that I have made quite a few things from furniture to shelves, boxes etc.

Thanks for the great articles and items on this board.
