This month we are having our first Mini-Symposium of 2012. We have a great lineup of demonstrators from our club. Take a look at the list below and be prepared to learn something new that you can take back to your own shop.
Please don’t forget that at every Mini-Symposium Andy Firpo has a safety exhibit. As woodturners we do not only use lathes. Band saws and chainsaws are also basic tools of the woodturner. If you are a segmented turner you also use table saws, miter saws, jointers and planers. Safety should always be your number one concern, so stop by and see Andy.
This month’s demonstrators are:
Roy Lane – Large hollowing on the club’s Powermatic 3520b lathe
Dave Schweitzer – Sharpening with a diamond wheel
Jeff Schultz & Brad Husby – Segmented Turning Sleds and Jigs
Stephany Lane – Pyrography Embellishments
Bob Sievers – Ornamental Turning on his Rose Engine lathe
Jeff Marsden – Turning Pens & Working w/ Alternative Materials/Cast Resin
Bill Bender – Turning Peppermills
If you have tools you would like sharpened, bring them with you. Dave enjoys demonstrating sharpening with dull tools and he would much rather take metal off your dull tools than to continue taking metal off his already sharp tools.
