Kelly:
Send me a mail with the make and model (if you can find it) of that
turntable. I may be able to give you a "quick" fix on how to
reverse it.

Subject: Phil's wood/ record player

Phil, if they do indeed find one of your bison tools several
milennia
hence -- no doubt still in the bony grip of a skeletal, grinning
potter
-- the beveled cutting edge will still be sharp. And if not, I am
sure
yoou'd offer to sharpen it for a pittance -- as I suspect you have a
time machine secreted somewhere in your shop -- and are just
visiting
our century on vacation. Or perhaps are delayed here, unable to find
non-ISO parts to repair your time machine...

I went today and got the darn record player to throw my baby pots.
It is
quiet as a mouse and has two speeds (45 and 33.) The only challege
is
that the damn thing goes BACKWARD. I can't tell you how many times I
set
to work on the wrong "quadrant".

My intention was to use my old Janis Joplin and Guess Who, Etta
James
and Three Dog Night albums as bats, but of course the little stick
in
the middle had to go. I found a wide toothpaste lid that jammed down
in
the opening quite nicely, scored the top for traction with a dolin
cutter, and I am starting with a fat carrot of clay and throwing
"off
the hump".

Connor, my middle child, has been bringing stacks of riddle books
home
from the library and he is spending a lot of time trying to invent
riddles for us -- cat ones for Molly, spiderman ones for tyler,
fishing
ones for grandpa. He offered me this one at breakfast:

"What's the difference between a person who makes colanders and a
person
who buries urns?"

"One puts holes in pots, the other puts pots in holes."

Not a rofl riddle, but he's getting the idea!
Yours
Kelly in Ohio
nostalgic, just looking at a record player.. it's not the first time
I've had Muddy Waters on a record player ;0) (gotta try that one out
on
Connor. )

Kelly,
I read your post to my husband , Jim, especially about the backwards
record player and he said that maybe you should throw upside down.
....?
