Nice Job Art. You seem to be a CNC building machine. You must not do much else than CNC.

Retired

I am extremly fortunate that in my retirement the income from my shop is not necessary to keep a roof over my head. I planned to open a cabinet shop when I retired and in the 25 years before I built the shops and bought the equiptment and it is all paid for. A friend also had the same idea and I saw what a PITA retail work was and in stumbling around to find something else I got the idea to do custom wood turning. Turned out that in the Dallas, Texas area there is no one else that wants the small jobs so I have no competion. While I am not making enough to totaly support myself, which was not the goal I am making a very nice retirement income and I am getting paid to do what I love to do so I usually spend most of my time in the shop.

Art,
Glad to see you are enjoying your retirement. I would like to be there also, but alas have a few more years to go before that happens. All too often I see people who retire too late and do not have any time or health to enjoy themselves.

Ditto on getting the tools now. I am collecting sometimes while my wife asks ... what is that for .... I just say trust me ... Works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't . I just grabbed a 1981 13x42 South Bend Lathe with a taper attachment to replace my Chinese lathe (10x22 110v unit).

If you buy stuff along it sure is nice to have the stuff you need when you need it .... Now to just convince folks to let me retire early ,,, hmmmm ..

I wonder if Art is still with us? I read his stuff a lot when I first starting venturing here, as I owned (still do) a Legacy Ornamental Mill.
He certainly knew his craft.
Hasn't logged in in a couple years.
Looked for his website, but everything seems to be gone.

I had an email from Rich Golder today who does the indexer wizards, and he has not heard from Art for a while as well.
I threw an email at his old address, see if he responds. Probably been a couple years since my last email with him.

Art lives about an hour from me.
I called his number today to see how he was.
His caretaker told me that he was in the VA - Veteran's Administration.
It didn't sound good.
I always wanted to meet him, just never made the time.

"I always wanted to meet him, just never made the time."

How many times have I said that same thing about someone?
Trying to change that going forward.
Hope all is well for Art.

It was his website that originally peeked my interest in building a CNC for carving. I found it one day looking for something and it was an accident that I got here. I remember saying "WOW" and enthusiastically telling my wife to come and look at the pictures. He inspired many even if he did not know.

Rest In Peace Sir.

I had the opportunity to have many conversations with Art on the phone
and through email over the years. He was always helpful and a good guy
to talk to . RIP Art. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
