hey tom! I can't say I remember steve, but I was a member of the ornamental turners society some 30 years ago...attended several, yearly symposiums... then, it seems the group was absorbed into the AAW, then seemed to fade away...good stuff back then, but a bit more simplistic then what is available in today's world, I might think...I do enjoy "playing" with my legacy but, realistically, a good cnc machine with the right program, can duplicate just about any thing you could imagine on a legacy(with or without any custom mods) without the need for the gears, lead screws, no back lash, etc.,etc...steve white's work and mods are very impressive, I have to say...what it boils down to, in my opinion, is this: are you doing ornamental work for business or pleasure?... for pleasure, you can "play" with doing your own mods, somewhat in a fashion like steve does, but perhaps a bit simpler, LOL!...a lot of us have the imagination and design skills to go to certain levels with our legacy machines, but not the equipment or metal turning/milling skills needed to go to the level that steve does...I for one would certainly pay an admission just to see his workshop and equipment, and to have a lengthy conversation on the state of ornamental turning in today's world with him...it's all good!...thanks for the reply!...joe
