  1. I recently bought a lathe and want to learn basic stuff……especially safety related things. Would I benefit from attending your meetings, or would it be too advanced? Thanks in advance for your reply. J.C>

    • Yes you would benefit from the meetings. Everyone there is willing to help anyone new thru advanced turners. Lots of good information and safety information. Ask any questions about turning. Someone new to turning without some guidance can have some safety issues addressed that you may not pick up on in a book or video. Attend a meeting and if you like what you see you can join. There are benefits to becoming a menber. See you at the meeting. Thanks Norman Sloan.
