I spend 3 months a year in Central Florida in Lake Wales. Typically, I do not bring a lathe with me, but this year I am bringing my Jet Mini to work on smalls and teach a friend. I cannot bring everything, and will be shy my sharpening set up, so if I could find a place were I could sharpen my gouges once in a while, I think I can get by with a hone. Last year I took Don Gieger's course at the Fl Symposium and it is my favorite.
I have not turned in Florida in the past because my wife has an issue with wood chips in EVERYTHING - you understand. I like to turn on my back screen room, and with a breeze, the screens look like some strange wood bomb went off. Now I do it out in the yard, but looking for a shed.
Wondering if anyone gets together around Lake Wales/Polk County that I could meet up with and enjoy some turning.
If some of you know what goes on, let me know. I have attended the Central Florida meeting at Woodcraft in Orlando, but wondering if something is closer to Lake Wales.
