Sometimes self learning is a detriment as well. I wish when I was growing up that I had knowledgeable folks to train me in shooting (my city raised dad would have freaked!) but I didn't. I'm still trying to unlearn some of the things self taught decades ago. I move forward slowly at my age, but I do move forward. Other things (such as "Quick Kill" in the military) have stayed with me for all these decades and it was a survival skill and just done unconciously. Just google it if you're interested. I actually need to consciously slow myself down when bird hunting otherwise I just have a cloud of feathers... amazing how the mind works even after decades.

It may be reinventing the wheel, but sometimes there is no local classes and sometimes the journey is the destination Wink

Update: The lathe will be delivered on the 2nd. The carbide cutters will take a couple of weeks more, but I got some cheap gouges and scrapers in a drawer... so I'll try to make some chips Tongue

I expect a steep learning curve Biggrin

Congrats....Enjoy. Make some candlestick holders, they are super easy to make.... Cheers
