Yes turning is very enjoyable, been turning for about 5 years or so I turn pens of all kinds ball point, roller ball fountain pens,also bottle stoppers, candle sticks, key chains,bowls, platters etc. I have 3 lathes two stand up large lathes, and a mini lathe i take w/ in the Monty. I also cast my own Acrylic blanks, pheasant feathers, snake skin , you name , for the most part I use exotic woods and old grow woods from all over the world.
If you know someone down your way that has a Ring master lathe sure would like to here from them..
