Welcome to all of our new U.S. and International subscribers and thank you for joining us! This is the Fiftieth edition of Lathe Talk, a free newsletter (e-zine) for subscribers of Steve Russell’s "Woodturning Videos Plus" woodturning website. This newsletter will be delivered approximately once every six to eight weeks to the email address you indicated on your sign-up form. All back issues of this newsletter are available to subscribers here.

Lathe Talk will offer tips and tricks to make your woodturning easier and more productive. I’ll also show you ways to save money in your studio, so you can stretch your hard earned money. In addition, we will periodically offer subscribers only specials on our videos and e-books. If you like this e-zine, please do a friend and me a favor by forwarding it to them. If a friend DID forward this to you and you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting our subscription page.

Woodturning Videos Plus Update

The Future of Lathe Talk: In the last issue of Lathe Talk, I asked you to comment on whether you wanted to see professionally produced videos added to future editions of Lathe Talk and if you would be willing to help support the effort by donating a small amount via a PayPal link in the e-zine. Unfortunately only a few readers responded… With such a small sampling, it is hard to move forward on this idea. Although most of the respondents were in favor of seeing videos and indicated they would be happy to help with a small donation, the overall sampling was too small to get a good idea of the overall feeling of Lathe Talk subscribers on the subject of adding videos to future issues.

Because of this, I think we need to table this idea until next year when we can revisit it again in the hopes of getting a larger response rate. I would like to personally thank everyone who responded to my request to share your opinion and I sincerely appreciate all of the kind words and the offers to help get the video addition off the ground. I’m going to reassess the overall plan early next year and see if there is any way I can add this content in the near future.
