I would suggest that you join up with CAMS (Chesapeake Area
Metalworking Society) and find someone there.
There is no membership charge -- just interest.
There are regular meetings in Virginia and Maryland (alternate
months -- next one is in Maryland, the VA one was last week.
Here is the URL:
Just look up the next meeting, and pop up there -- no need to clear
anything ahead of time -- no membership fees means no hassle. :-)
I've been helping a long time friend out west of the Baltimore
Beltway to learn -- but it is happening in my shop these days, since I
spent so much time getting his lathe working properly.
Let people know what kind of lathe you got, and that may help to
select others who have similar machines, and therefor who could teach
the most directly applicable information.
