Just heard about this group
« on: February 09, 2019, 11:17:37 PM »
I just found out about this group today from Terry W.  I'm a mostly retired repairer of woodwind and brass musical instruments and tell people I am "studying machining on YouTube."   I've been actively pursuing this hobby for five or six years and have learned a lot and had a lot of fun.  I have a South Bend 10L lathe, a Clausing 8520 mill, and a bunch of other stuff (my latest acquisition was a Keller die filer--nice for making square holes), and am slowly learning how to make good use of them.

Welcome aboard Bill!  Glad to see you here, and it was really good seeing you and everyone else yesterday!


Daryl, I was hoping to see you there, but alas, life has a way of interfering with some of the things we like to do.   :'(


I was going to write a bit here about the gathering mentioned above, but I suspect that it would be better to have a separate thread for that, so you can all look for one shortly.
