The wheel has spun around to me to host another turning event. This time the Western side of Melbourne gets to sleep in :)

I am planning for it to be on Sunday 31 January.

Where: Hoppers Crossing (address will be PM'd later)
When: 31 January
Start: 0930 to about 4.

Please post your interest here so I can get an idea of numbers.

Also, as I am a novice turner (read - beginner) demonstrators are welcome.

Something I haven't seen yet at one of these events is an emphasis on finishing techniques. Maybe if our host turns up he could show us something.

Funny you should mention that.

On the 2oth Feb we have the annual club get together here with about 6 clubs attending.

This year is finishing with Jim Carroll demonstrating U beaut and Ken Wraight demonstrating his gallery finish.

Neil isn't back until end of February.

Greg good luck on getting someone to demo sanding

- Ern would no doubt br the best/expert/authority on this subject but unfortunately his broken wing would prevent him from Demo although i have no doubt he would instruct you on the correct use/placement of sandpaper:D:D:D:p:p:p

Do you have a set of 65mm (inside diameter) shark jaws and i will have a go at a pepper grinder. I will bring the drills etc.

can do the outside.:2tsup::2tsup:

Happy to chat about faceplate work finishing but there'll be plenty of other talent there to contribute as well.

PS amend that to lead a discussion on ...

Peeps could list finishing probs they'd like to get some tips on
eg. avoiding ripples due to distinct well-spaced early and late growth

I would have liked to attend, but it is a bit of a travel for me. Besides, there is an annual religious event that I have to observe that day.

EX's Timber
12th Jan 2010, 02:14 PM

Get a copy of Surgery for Dummies .... your tools should be sharp enuff. ;-}

To expand on the offer:

and I are prepared to do a duo, covering

1. Getting a clean finish off the tools
2. Abrasives
3. Finishes.

Given the mix of folk coming and I will work to devise a session that will meet the needs of newbs as well as allow old hands to share their practice wisdom.

David,

Thanks for the offer of a lift but as luck would have it I'll be taking my daughter to Melbourne airport early (7am flight) so I'll be in Melbourne anyway.

So I'll see you there.

Hi Groggy,
I will attend if all goes well ,will confirm closer to the date.
What can I bring to help with the day?:?
I will bring some Atlantic Cedar,:cool:
I have turned a small bowl from this timber,it was dry and finished well, coated with Organ oil and a week later it has become all sticky the resin came through the finish:~
Has anyone used this timber:?Would shellac prevent this from happening:?
Our club has had a lot of this timber ,just received another trailer load of logs the other day:;
Regards
David:2tsup:

rsser
15th Jan 2010, 11:44 AM
David, yeah, same prob with Deodar.

Solution thanks to Neil was to scrub the bowls out with meths and then 4 coats of ubeaut Hard Shellac.

Hope to see you at Groggy's.

Hi Groggy,

Please put me down on the attendance list as a learner ...... If there is anything that you need me to bring along please let me know ....... I have some nice pepper grinder blank timber (hint hint!).

Calm - as an ex Ballarat boy I am sure that you have both thongs and the trackies & moccasins in the wardrobe so it will just be a matter of deciding between summer or winter wear :)

Issatree ..... I trust there is a spare seat in the van????

Cheers

I have some nice pepper grinder blank timber (hint hint!).

Ern, if you mean one of those spinning doohickies on a stick then I have one.

rsser

That's a bit technical for me Groggy ;-}

One of these from our sponsor or similar ...

Groggy
15th Jan 2010, 09:33 PM
yep, got one

Mine was pulled out of shape by the packaging being too tight and has not recovered its true round shape (1 year on) so it gets a bit bumpy. Note to anyone buying them, they don't get their shape back so make sure it isn't deformed in its packaging.

Grumpy John
15th Jan 2010, 09:42 PM
David, seeing as you're doing a pepper grinder demo would you be able to bring along some photos of different styles of mills, or better still some examples?
Ern, are you planning on bringing some of those wiz bang American abrasives for us to have a look at?

rsser
15th Jan 2010, 09:48 PM
Cool, thanks Groggy.

GJ, haven't put in the order yet but can talk a bit about abrasive types; given the attendance, covering the basics would be 1st priority.

No had that done Ern but could do with a new chain & sprockets (tight spots) need to find supplier, the Ballarat shop & i have differences of opinion, need a mail order post job - too lazy to follow it up, walking after losing the chain will probably jog my memory.

Left Ballarat 10.40 am - beautiful sunshine - got to Drysdale about 11.55 - rained from Bannockburn in to Geelong city - not impressed when I come from beautiful sunny Ballarat:no::no::no:

Cheers

David, since you'll be demo'ing like a whizz, could you kick off the day?

The stuff and I will be doing would be a logical follow on.
