Hi all,

I've been learning a lot from sites like this, and from the usual suspects on youtube thinking I would buy a lathe and someday milling machine. And...a few weeks ago I bought a 1959 Sheldon 10" lathe! Currently the bulk of it is in my garage while I figure out how to get it into the basement.

I quite literally walked away from a career in retail leadership, took a few years off, and I'm now trying to make a living out of my garage and basement. I taught myself how to weld, first with oxy gas, then stick, mig, and then tig. I'm not great at any of them...

I'd love to hear what you think...

Thanks,
Steve

Hey Steve , I like what you are doing (making stuff and selling it) when I had my actual shop that was always my dream to invent something and market it . Good luck and keep us posted .

Look out they’ll try to make them illegal, they could hurt someone
