March 2019 CCW meeting reminder

ReminderFellow Woodturners, our next meeting is March 5, 2019.  We meet at 6:00 PM at the Lyndon House Arts Center located at 293 Hoyt Street, Athens.  Our demonstrator for the month is Ken Rizza.  Ken is the owner of Woodturners Wonders which sells various woodturning supplies and tools..  He will demonstrate sharpening carbide bits used in carbide turning tools.  This time the demonstration will be hands on so any person who wants to sharpen whatever tool they bring can do so.  Sharpening skews should be of particularly interest.  The demonstration will also include honing.  Members should bring a couple of tools but don’t monopolize the entire time with tool sharpening.

The demonstration will show sharpening using CBN wheels and grinder and then participants sharpen their tools, especially skews as they are difficult to sharpen.  There will be a chuck with a bowl blank partially turned to demonstrate sanding tools.  Additionally Ken will show his latest respiratory protection gear, especially the new Sundstrom half face respirator with either particulate or vapor filters.  Also super glue products, lathe lamps, which are LED and have a high light output and sanding tools .  There will be an opportunity to take orders or buy various items Ken will have available. 

Remember to bring something for the raffle and a friend.  If you haven’t paid dues for 2019 bring your check book.  Individual memberships are $30 and family memberships $35.
