More about me:

A long time software developer, now in sort of management (product owner).  I'm missing making things and have turned to the mechanical to purge my creative juices!

I've a CMD10 mini mill (too small) and an SPG0618A 7x14 lathe (respectable).  If learning is best done through mistakes, I will have a PhD in this stuff in no time...

Longish term project is a wood lathe, which might end up being able to turn metal.  Probably overreaching myself, but that simply provides more opportunity for mistakes and hence learning...
