11 Aug 20 – Workshop Activity Night
Welcome to our Workshop Activity Night
Sorry if you have had a couple of emails about this news post, as I had a few technical problems.
This month’s Workshop Activity night was another successful evening with several new people joining us as either guests or new members. Yes, we are still attracting to new members despite this new way of operating, so we must be doing something right. We also welcomed to the Club, Clive Brooks from Robert Sorby who dropped in to answer questions about their products. He gave us a master class on using the Pro Edge sharpening system providing us with lots of great hints and tips. You can view their videos that they have produced on their Youtube channel found HERE.
Where possible we are inviting guests from well known suppliers to join us on these workshop nights to answer questions from you the members. So you can start to have a think of what you want to ask, here are the dates again and who is coming. Please support this and do ask questions, don’t be shy, as these people have given up their time to join us, so lets make it worth the effort. If you have a question but dont want to ask it your self, that’s fine, just send a zoom chat message directly to either Alan Buckle or me, Martin Pigott and we wil lread it out. Alternatively, get really organised and email your questions through to the General Enquiries contact form.
Tue 8 Sept 2020 – Workshop Activity Night, Q & A with Terry Smart from Chestnut Products.
Tue 13 Oct 2020 – Workshop Activity Night, Q & A with Craig Heffren from Record Power to discuss Bandsaws.
Again this month we were pleased to see more members being happy to show and tell their turning triumphs but also share their problems and ask for help, again this is a great step forward. Below are just some of the photos provided after the meeting. If you are able to send me some photos of what you show that would be great as taking a photo of my screen does not work so good.
We are getting as many visitors to our online workshop nights and to our online Interactive demonstrations as we did in the Village Hall at West Ashby. Why you ask: because we have kept the same friendly atmosphere and are engaging really good turners to demonstrate for us. We have managed to enrol new members whilst in lockdown which is a great testament to the clubs continued popularity.
Coming up in the next few weeks for members Stewart Furini: – Tue 25 Aug 2020 https://www.stewartfuriniwoodturning.co.uk/
