    Hi All
    My name is Ray and I have just joined this forum.I have been making knives for about 20 years
    I like to make all types of knives including folders.I am a member of the Australian Knife makers guild.We have just moved from a country property
    and have built a new home in the city. I have not made a knife for around 4 months as I am trying to get my new knife shop up and running.
    The new shop is much smaller than the previous one, but I will be able fit all my tools, in and only have to move my lathe and milling machine now.
    Hope to get started in a couple of weeks and turn out a couple of new blades.
    I will try to post some pics of my new shop soon.
    Cheers Ray (meno)

    I look forward to picking up some tips and perhaps passing some on to other makers.

                          Welcome Ray!
                          Happy to help too, but like KK - not with moving a lathe. I moved one once. It involved a Hiab, water pipe, a slight slope, six blokes and a slab. I recovered from the hangover the next day. The back is still sore. Just sayin'.
