The evening was a hands on with a couple of lathes in operation plus a sharpening station. Roger Gilbert worked on a square bowl in what looked like spalted birch which provided many of us with an insight into “propeller” turning. Roger fielded many questions on the subject plus others about the use of a skew chisel and other gouges. Glyn Jennings worked on the other lathe and showed the use of carbide tipped tools for hollowing etc. This drew strong interest and again Glyn answered a number of questions about this. Mick Denton ran a sharpening demonstration which was also well attended with many questions arising. As an event this proved to be very sociable and of great interest to all there, especially to our newer members.
