Nice work Les. Not my style particularly but well executed. And I don’t see a duplicater on that lathe !

BTW I would be willing to trade lathes with you and I would even throw in a duplicater. You can sleep on it. JB

You’ve really been “turning” out the work lately!

I’d love to trade lathes with you, but I don’t even have a duplicator to throw in the deal! It is amazing, though, what my husband can “turn” out on a lathe that I bought for under $100 new! (It’s pretty rinky-dink.)
