Our next meeting on the 8th August 2019 is about working with threads in woodturning. There will be 2 turners demonstrating how threads are made in wood, James Wares will be using hand chasing tools and I will be using a threading box and thread tap. Also working a lathe will be Errol Levings. This meeting has been organized by Colin MacRae.
The hand chasing tools are very useful when making larger diameter threads on things like wooden boxes. The threading box and tap system is best used for making joints on things like standard lamps or to fix the bases on table lamps. The meeting will start at 6.45pm as usual but will be preceded by a full committee meeting.
