Just announcing my presence. Terrywerm suggested I join over here. I've been a member for some time on another very busy forum, but I am told that this place is a little more quiet, but with enough to make it interesting and without all the stuffed shirt rules. I don't know much about machining yet, but Terry has been teaching me things about the lathe that I inherited from my dad when he passed away. I am learning slowly, and it's fun too.

Stuffed shirts?! Lol. Oh, we know... Interesting phrase, kinda hits the nail on the head.

Welcome! It's quiet here sometimes but still quite a bit going on. Ask anything. There are quite a few of us that are still learning about machining too. Especially me!

Welcome.   Some of us are not on here a lot, but do what we can when we can.  It may take a while (especially if it is me) but the help on here is great.

Don't sweat getting old, you'll still do dumb shit, just slower.

Welcome Aboard Paul.  I'm one of the resident greenhorns that asks all the wrong questions.  :D

Jump in and ask away,  maybe share what you've been working with.

It really depends on what the stuffed shirts are stuff with, the young lady down the street has quite a stuffed shirt, but thatís a different subject........

Welcome aboard!!

The only wrong question is the one you did not ask,  And don't be like me and wait till you mess it up to ask how I should have tried to do it.   But then there is always multiple ways to do things.   I just keep picking the wrong one.

Welcome Aboard Paul.
 Jump in and have fun.  Don't be afraid to ask questions. Every one of us was green at the beginning.
 I know its kind of a pain in the butt, but if you post a picture of what you are having trouble with it will be easier to help you out.
 Looking forward to your posts.

It's about time you showed up over here!  Glad to see you made it. Jump in and have fun. Some days are busy, some days are quiet, just enjoy for what it's worth. Oh, and if someone shows you a trick that is different than what I showed you in person, that's okay!  Choose the one you like and go with it. Most things we do have a multitude of ways to do them.


By the way, it's your turn to buy coffee.
