Dang those are some big shoes to fill. I would be glad to pick as good as you on your worst day Jim Reed. You are one of my favorites and always will be. Now don't get me wrong, I am after it, I just may never get there.

Hey Jim i will tell you a little Story Mate. I have just been given an Old Lathe out of a local School, its a Boxford made in the early 80s, which makes it about 30 Years Old, the School had it in the Woodwork Classroom, and had been Turning Wood on it. It was real Dirty full of Sawdust, and Cutting Oil (wrong tool for the job) Anyway i cleaned this Beut up fitted the Tool Post, and Tail Stock WOW smooth as Silk, Runs like a Dream, i have another Lathe a Cheap Chinese Job about 5 Years Old., and that Old Boxford knocks it for the Count. The Moral of this Story Jim is a Good Old Un, knocks the Spots off a Modern Imitation. You Keep on Pickin till you cant, dont deprive us of your Fabulous Pickin Jim Reed !
