    Thumbs up Congrats to Robert McGowen - Winner/Segmented Category!!

    Robert McGowen was the top vote getter in the Segmented Category of the SMC Fall Turning 2010 Contest!!! Congratulations, Robert!!

    Robert will receive the following prizes:

    Sean Ackerman of ToolNut has donated a SuperNova 2 chuck. David Woodruff, of PD Woods, has donated a 4" tool rest of his special design. In addition, Doug Thompson of Thompson Lathe Tools has donated a 5/8"" V Bowl Gouge, and a 1/2" V Bowl Gouge.

    All of the entries were great examples of the talent on SMC. A great big THANKS to all that participated, and a special THANK YOU for the great prizes donated by our contest sponsors.

    Thank you to everyone that helped this come together like it did. I know that there was lot of behind-the-scenes work by the moderators. Also, thank you to everyone that participated by voting and entering their own pieces that they turned. And a really big thanks to the sponsors!

    It is nice to be recognized by someone other than your spouse!
