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
