Bruce Lewellyn from California sent out this picture and email to some of his pals:
OK gang, it's here and up and running. Check out the chips this baby makes. This salad bowl (rather large) is it's first turning. What a fantastic machine. Even better than I remembered from the last time I'd seen a Robust. Lots of keen features. It's been worth the wait. Yes, I'm having fun now.
Bruce has a great website too, check out his work in wood and stone here: http://brucelewellyn.com/
