    I have a small mains operated wood lathe to trade/swap if anyones interested?

    Its belt driven and can work outside the frame, so you turn conventionaly and outside for larger items like bowls or plates etc. I dare say that with a little thought you could adapt the tool rest to allow basic metal turning in soft metals...mild steel, brass or aluminium?
    I also have a full of set of quality turning tools, as well as some I made myself, like gouges and broad scrapers etc...

    Im looking to swap for a basic bow, an old WildCat or something along those lines. Nothing expensive just a basic crossbow I can experiment on in the workshop?

    Im happy to take pics if theres any interest.

    I will talk to the Geezer... I could use one, as I am trying to make a woodshop of my own, work from home some days a week! I will miss Geezer, but I can still go in a couple of days. Long commute to Austin, can't afford the gas...

    But, yes, let me show this to him, see if it can do what we/I need it to do, then, if he sez yes, we can talk trade, altho I AM In Central Texas, so, don't know that I could afford the shipping.

    I'll get back to you, thanks for reply!

    Yup.....that might be a downer there fella!
    But I am prepared to crate it up properly and help you out at this end re shipping etc. I've moved stuff across the UK, but thats NOT the US of A LOL.
    I bought some goodies when last in NYC and had the store owner ship it to me, it took several months, but it did all arrive in one piece with no problems.

    Now we would be talking 'used goods' here wouldnt we? A non-monetary transaction between friends, so that approach could help when looking at import duty maybe.
    Pity it wasnt last year when I could still shoot my bow, Cabelas Carbon Hunter arrows were amazing out of it, but the price when imported was amazing too LOL.

    So you chew things over with your friend and get back to me, its not offered anywhere as yet, so the games still in play.
    I no longer shoot so my hobby options have changed, I do RC cars/trucks, home astronomy and ham radio. So maybe that widens your trade options a little.

    Keep in touch...

    Ack, Bill... I ONLY really have my bows to trade with you. (or cats... perhaps..)My hubby is a ham nut, but I do imagine if some of his equipment went missing, and a lathe suddenly turned up, there might be some explaining to do! Ah well... I am in no hurry, so, if something DOES show up, I can get back to you. 
    Used goods, no worries! Transaction between friends.
    What's up with not being able to shoot? Actually, I went to crossbows, as the arthritis made it impossible to shoot hand bows. :-(

    Thanks for prompt reply!

    Best;

    Cats.........argh....demon spawn of hell!
    Good job we have a terrier LOL
    It can get pretty painful even picking things up sometimes, pair that with a Tru-Ball 360 release and Im wary of an accidental release, you only need one?
    Crossbow might be an option of coarse, both hands to draw that I think.

    Crossbows are kinda-sorta frowned on in the UK, too many nuts taking potshots at pets and livestock.
