March Clubnight

This evening included demonstrations from Keith West and Stephen Long, plus the experimental, Beginners' Corner hosted by John Haxell.

Keith provided tool suggestions and some handy techniques for producing captive rings on a range of projects, whilst Stephen continued the Alternative Chucking Methods demonstration started by John Haxell at January's clubnight, and showed a variety of methods for removing chucking points from bowl bases; of major interest was Stephen's use of the remarkably capable, Longworth chuck. The maiden Beginners' Corner was well received and kept John busy most of the evening; it seemed to be of interest to turners of all skill levels and all ages!

Thank you to Keith, Stephen and John, plus further thanks to Graham Drury for his photographs, John Guilfoyle and his helpers in the kitchen and Mike Merrett for running the raffle.

Longworth style chucks are available from Biven Machinery and Ockenden Timber. Alternatively, you might be interested in these links:
