Hands On Night.
The February meeting is a hands on night when the aim is for members to get involved on the lathes etc., and to have discussions with other members. Please feel free to bring items along to discuss whether they are problematical or a great success!
There will be a sale table so if anyone has surplus gear to sell, feel free to fetch it along.
A number of Club members have agreed to demonstrate ideas and techniques and these include:
David Bird, bowl saver tool
Arthur Bowes, fixed hollowing tool
Tony Chappell, turning mushrooms
Joe McElwee, turning Christmas trees
Allan Joicey, using pewter in turning
Stuart Graham, will have a laptop to show people how to access the club website and Forum.

Demonstration by Allan Joicey.
