The Next Club Meeting:  20th February 2019 – Hands On and Woodworks stand

For the next meeting we will have a hands on evening where a couple of lathes will be set up for members to use. This is a great opportunity for new turners and experienced turners to try out new things. Bring some tools and some wood and make a project. We will also be assessing the stand for Woodworks exhibition so we welcome members comments, suggestions and input on this.

General notices.

The club AGM is coming up on 3rd April 2019 and usually includes an auction of members tools, machinery etc. If you have something that you would like to, or need to, get rid of here is your opportunity, please bring it along on the night.

Woodworks 2019.

The dates for Woodworks 2019 have been released and is due to take place on the 10th and 11th May 2019. The details of the competitions etc have been finalised and these are shown on the Club Notices page for your reference, although there have been a couple of alterations which we have been notified of.

Axminster Ltd discount. Over the last couple of meetings it was mentioned that if you purchase anything at an Axminster Tools store and you produce your membership card you are entitled to a 5% discount on all products except power tools.

Book Sale: The committee have also decided that as there have been no lendings from the library over the last 12 months that all of the books will be sold. If you are interested please see Tom Donnelly during the next few meetings to view what is available and get a price. There are still a few useful reference books available and only for a few pounds so get in quickly before they all go.
Also in the For Sale page is 1 person that has contacted us recently with lathes and tools for sale. Please go to this page for more information. If you are interested please contact Linda Burrows directly.
