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 email@example.com
