Default Any turners in Racine, WI?

I'm finally giving in to my curiosity about turning and am picking up a
midi-lathe and a good set of tools in a few days. Would like to network
with turners in SE Wisconsin. It seems like the closest club is a bit
out of comfortable driving range. I can be reached at lawrence dot r
dot tarnoff at gmail dot com.

If an experiment works, you must be
using the wrong equipment.

Not surprising, many non-urban areas have few clubs

Of course you could start one... A guy I know moved to a town in Montana
where the closest club was 200 miles away, so he started a club. They
have about 25 members now

I don't think I could take the gnats, although if you're near the coast
I might reconsider.

Strange thing about the gnats. When I was growing up here they were a
fact of life.
When we moved back here in '99 there were no gnats and the young
people did not know what they were. Last year they returned. Must
be the global swarming.

Hey there. I am in Racine , and I started segmented woodturning about 6 months ago. I also started single piece bowl / box +lid turning as well. Maybe starting a club is a good idea if we can find more turners in the area. My name is John. I can be reached at

Conceivably beginning a club is a great thought provided that we can find more turners in the zone. I began divided wood turning in the ballpark of 8 months prior. I likewise began single piece bowl turning besides.
