Hey Tim … welcome!

Ask away … we have some regulars on this forum who are a wealth of knowledge and experience. The more info (or pictures) you can give us about a problem or question, the better.

Hi Tim and welcome from NC.
I’ve had my 1624 over eight years and we are still going strong.
No a pro by a long shot but will try to help answer anything that I can.

Welcome aboard, Tim! I’m a spring pole turner myself. I just love doing things on the down stroke! LOL! I look forward to seeing some of your turnings!

Welcome Dr. Tim (MD?).

We use the same lathe. I’ve been very happy with mine. The only complaint I can think of is the lever to tighten the banjo sometimes loosens up and you have to use a hex wrench to tighten the screw under the banjo. I’ve just bought some LocTite to put on the bolt so it doesn’t keep working loose.

I just finished a 10” honey locust bowl, two rough turned walnut bowls and a 13” platter this weekend. It is an addictive habit, I mean hobby.

I’m OK at turning but still learning. Hope you get the help you need here.

My 1624 is about 4 years old. For the money it has been a great lathe.

I keep the beard tucked in a shirt or jacket when I am in the shop. That would kinda hurt a little if it got caught in the lathe. LOL

welcome Tim. I agree with everyone; this is a wonderful site to ask questions. Ask one Q, get 5 answers ;) I’m a newbie to turning, having fun, turning big wood into wee pieces, and keeping all my fingers (so far). Started on pens, now shattering bowls.

Where are you in MD? I am in Monkey County (Rockville). If we are close enough perhaps we can meet up some time.
