In Topic: How Many People Here Subscribe To Magazines Like Ceramics Monthy, Studio Pott...

I used to subscribe to CM, Clay Times & Pottery Making Illustrated, but stopped all of them. We have a wonderful bookstore that carries all publications so I purchase whatever one I like best when I need inspiration.

In Topic: Qotw: Would You Laugh At Me If I Told You That I Am Using A Gg?

I have had a GG pretty close to when it was available. I use it when I'm making multiple pieces, which is almost all the time & it cuts trimming time. My only problem is trimming lids, the knob is too small to be grabbed by the lugs. I made a chuck that works ok, but it would be nice to not have to remove the GG to trim lids.

I crossed paths with Tom a few times & missed a chance to have coffee a couple of years ago, my life got in the way. I'm sorry for that. I also read & enjoyed his forum posts. I wish him a happy journey at his resting place near his beloved cottage.

I used to have an estrin & another kick wheel and was told when learning eons ago, to always wear running shoes to help control the speed & stopping control.
Try it.
