I can tell that you are very excited about this acquisition. May I suggest that a better place to tell us about this would be in the blog section.

yeah, as soon as i got it back to the shop i pluggd it in and turned a little piece of walnut i had layin around, worked great, the guy gave me a set of gouges and chisels with it, they need to be sharpened but they did the trick :^)
