Our club meeting on Thursday evening 24th January 2019 was a one to one meeting, where an experienced member would take a less experienced member through the process of doing something that they find challenging, this could be some element of turning or it could be sharpening the tools. We had 3 lathes in operation and the sharpening station. Bill Munro was showing Dave Line some of the finer points of spindle turning. Errol Levings was doing long hole boring with Graham Charge, (Graham is a new member to our club). David Hay was at the sharpening station demonstrating the art of sharpening, we had asked the members to bring in a tool to get reground or sharpened, suffice to say David was kept very busy. Lastly I Alec Mutch was demonstrating the use of a bowl gouge with Bill Henderson, Bill has been using tipped tools thus far but now felt it was time to try and use the gouge. The turn out of members was very good and the evening went very well, Peter Lawrence was the manager for this session.

John Ruickbie is going to take a novice turner through the process of getting started, this will include a talk on safety, some sharpening and some lathe work.

Late update for Thursday’s meeting, David Hutcheson can’t be there due to other commitments, however his place has been filled by Bill Munro so the spindle turning with Bill and Dave line will go ahead as planned.
Our first meeting of 2019 was held on Thursday evening 10th January 2019. It was all to do with spindle turning, there were 4 turners working the lathes, Bill Munro who also managed the session along with David Hutcheson, Charles Richards and David McGruer, all were to do different things but with the same theme of spindle turning. The turn out was very good and the evening went well.
