Lathe Talk Celebrates its Third Anniversary Next Month! My how time flies! Next month will mark the third anniversary of Lathe Talk. As we move into our third year, I’m reminded of our very first issue. Since that time, our subscriber base has grown to include thousands and thousands of woodturners located in countries all over the world. Thanks for your continued interest and suggestions for ways to improve Lathe Talk. I sincerely appreciate your ideas and your words of support.

Late Distribution This Month Due to unavoidable circumstances, Lathe Talk is being distributed a day late this month. Our new distribution date is at or near the end of each month, but that was impossible this month due to a very heavy workflow in the studio and numerous special commissions that were completed near the end of the month. Thanks for your understanding.

Need to Change Your Lathe Talk Email Address? Links are available at the end of this newsletter to change/update your email address. I can also change the address for you if you prefer, but to do so I need your old email address and your new address. As always, your email address for Lathe Talk is kept totally confidential in every respect.
