Started wood turning about 15 yrs ago (real on / off) but just retired and now have time to "play" about in my Shed.
I run a Nova 3000 which I had a variable speed fitted to about 6 - 7 years ago. (Upgraded to a DVR Jan 2011, the Nova went on to another Guild member)
I have been a member of the South auckland Woodturners Guild for some years but unfortunately our Wednesday night club night clashes with another commitment so I dont get along too often.We have an interesting web site well worth having a look at (www.sawg.org.nz)
Sandra & I will be celebrating our 49th wedding aniv' next Jan', have two Daughters who still live in Auckland and like nothing better than taking Mum & the old man out for the night and sharing a few of our delicious NZ wines
Stumbled on this site and can't believe the shared information available. Cheers from Peteg ; New Zealand firstname.lastname@example.org

We have news releases of the devastating Tornadoes that have swept thru the Mid west, these must be very terrifying for thoes in the line of fire so to speak. We are lucky in NZ that we dont have the tornado season reach as far South as our Countr...
I thought it was time to upgrade my faithful 3000 to a new DVR. Hard to imagine how a machine simply spinning a piece of timber around neeeds to be anything more than a motor driving a shaft with some method of attachment for you timber.Thats what...
