Topic: Getting More Out of Basic Tools


August 6th 2022 9am  In Person and on Zoom.

In this demonstration we will focus on 5 tools--the parting tool, spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge, bowl gouge and scraper.  We will talk about how each tool works, how to sharpen it (and sometimes hone it) , some basic cuts, some other things that each tool can do that we may not readily know (or may have forgotten) and some suggestions on their role(s) in your shop.  The goal is to help all of us appreciate the nuances that these tools offer and make better use of them in our turnings.

This Meeting will be held at HOUCK MACHINE COMPANY.

Meeting will start at 9:00am
