A sawdust session is an opportunity for hands-on learning. The session
will either be an open shop or a specific topic. Those
who have a portable lathe are asked to bring them and an appropriate
chuck. The club has portable lathes that will be
available. We expect to share the lathes so that all who want
to turn will get some lathe time.
Any member is welcome to
come and bring tools to work with or projects that are causing you a
problem. Help will be available. When the session is
scheduled to work on a particular project the designated resource
person for that day will be available to show specific techniques
and answer questions. The format will be hands-on with
informal discussion for clarification. Normally a sawdust
session will not involve a formal presentation such as we have at
monthly meetings. Sawdust sessions are a members only event.
Sawdust sessions will be announced at our monthly meetings and a signup
sheet will be available to signup for the event. This is a members only
activity. If you are interested, but are not a member, please consider
joining our club and signing up for the sawdust session. Attendees should
plan to bring a portable lathe and turning tools (if you have them), club
name tag, eye protection, a brown bag lunch, and a chair to sit on during breaks.
