It's just a model name.

Hi!
Just starting out as a model builder. Ordered my first lathe a few days ago, a 17" Sherline with all the bells and whistles! Should be able to pick it up soon!

Looking forward to posting my successes and failures and hopefully getting some pointers on how to fix the sticky situations i will most likely find myself in!!

Looks like a great forum!!

Welcome to the forum lazylathe.
Lots of fun here.
Any thoughts yet as to what you want to build with the lathe?

[EDIT: Oh! And tell us about yourself.]

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!!

To start with....
I visited the page where you all proudly display your lathes.
I now know that i am in the minor league playing with the Big Boys!!!
There truly are some beautiful machines out there!
Maybe one day when i have some experience i will move on up the "Ladder Of Lathes".

I am thinking of starting with some very simple projects to gain some confidence on a metal lathe. Worked a lot on wood lathes, but they are different beasts all together.
Maybe a Wobbler or two??
Some centre punches and a few ball pene hammers for woodworking friends of mine.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
