This month is the last of this year’s Mini-Symposiums. These have proven to be extremely popular events. This is the time to learn some of the techniques which you have been wondering about. As always, we will have several demonstrations set up around the room. You are welcome to attend one or all. Now is your chance to get up close and question the demonstrator.
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:
Warren Swift – Yo-yo’s
Jeff Schultz – Small hollowing
Eric Lofstrom – Turning beads with the skew
Dave Schweitzer – Sharpening with a diamond wheel
Craig Chatterton – Pen and pen design
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.
