    Mrs. Santa gave me a Grizzly G0462 lathe to add to my current 10 year old Rikon pen lathe. I have been wanting to do bowls up to 14 inches. Can do it now. A Christmas present set of 5 tickets for 5 family members (including me) was for this past MNF Dallas/Detroit game in Dallas (500 miles away). I had to decide, larger 220v lathe or Cowboys tickets with hard core Cowboy fans - twin grandsons, son in law and daughter. Cowboys with family won and I got a lathe that will do the job that I need - for now.

    Got a Nova Chuck with large cole/flat jaws to go with it along with Sorby Spiraling and texturing tool. I wasn't expecting these but LOML checked with daughter and son in law to find out my wants.

    And an 8 inch & 12 inch pencil compass for larger circles. Been wanting that for eons but never found them at decent prices until this year.

          I'm not - its going to the garage to become a Gp grinder/sharpener.

            Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

            Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
