Hi Gavin

I'm going to (attempt) make my my first pole lathe over my Christmas hols and i was wondering if you could help me. I noticed on a old post of yours you had pole lathe centers for sale. This is what i need, do you still have some for sale or could you help me in finding some?

Best Regards
Bob

I am not forging hooks at the moment, suggest you contact Ben Orford www.benorford.com or Paul Atkin http://paulatkin.co.uk/ who both make hooks.

Thanks for the plug Gavin. Lewis some advice. Tempting as it is with a new hobby to throw money at it DONT! do some research and start with your lathe. if you can, try and see other craftsfolk at work you can learn loads by watching. If you insist on spending money then it should be an investment, so you would be better off spending your dosh on a hammer a bench grinder and a hairdryer. Theres loads of info on this site for making hook tools(thats how i learnt) ps very rarely do i sell a hook, i would rather spend my time convincing folks to make there own. good luck with your new venture Paul

i could not agree more with Paul's advice above.
it is far to easy to spend money on tools which get little use, only now after 15 or so years am i realising this and it seems to have also taken me about 15 yrears to find my favorite green wood working activities, where as before i tried lots of things now i seem to have a focus: bowls, spoons and gypsy flowers things i am trying to become really good at and understand the finer principles of rather than just becoming competant.

all the best
Paul
