If you click on your picture in photo bucket and then on the right last option is a tag line click on that and copy . Then in your post here just click and paste , no tags needed as photo bucket does that for you .

Bought a Perform CCL late about a year ago for my retirement
I turn both green wood and prepared blanks
Prefer to turn green as it cuts so well the only drawback is the distortion?

Hello Sooty, Welcome! ;D ;D ;D ;D

So, another pensioner, plus Dom, Senior and a few other oldies.

Can you post some pics of "green" stuff?
I have only turned very dry stock.

Very nice work! :) :) :)

When you turn it green, how long does it take to 'dry out' before you can finish it?

Celt, not familiar with them.
We tend to see the Jet here + few others which i think come from China and other unknown places. ??? ??? ???

The Jet is solidly built as opposed to some very "tinny" Eastern stuff.

The chap i bought my lathe from (ZAR575), bought a new 'Eurasia'???, he found it lightweight and had the cheek to want to buy his old one back from me.
Needless to say i told him to take a very long trip to Never-land ;D ;D

Hello, just joined up here but I'm a regular on an Australian forum which judging from some of the usernames on here is frequented by some of you blokes.

I have a lathe, the MC-1100 chinese clone, I'll post pictures in the other forum. I turn pens, bowls, goblets, eggs, vases and anything else that takes my fancy, look forward to having a chat.

Hello everybody. I've just signed up. I'm in London. Been turning for many years, making a bit of money out of it, but only part time. Mostly I make spindles out of reclaimed timber and other stuff out of mdf. Lots of mdf, actually it turns surprisingly well, but it normally gets painted. I used to do craft fair stuff but haven't had time for that for years.

And photos!
Even if it is turned mdf!
Re paint;interesting article here if you scroll down.
I like paint too, not only because you can get away with cheaper materials and filled holes, but also in it's own right; it brings out the architecture or 'can reveal the form' as Chris Schwarz says.
Also quite a few woods aren't all that interesting in the nude.

Whilst not normally a fan of paint I love that "Yankee Blue". I think it sets the piece of beautifully and as he says you can see the form.
