Wayne Akerman is from northern Illinois so he and his son made the trip to our shop in southern Wisconsin to pick up the Sweet 16 we built for him. Dealing with Wayne has been a treat and he keeps buying more toys for his lathe, like the curved rest you see here and a steady rest as well. Not long after Wayne got his lathe he sent us this note:
"After a month I am yet more impressed and satisfied...a real pleasure to use the machine you have developed. Thank you."
Thank you Wayne !
