Notes of meeting 16th October 14
This month there were 21 members present.
This month’s demonstration was a demonstration by John Marshall on the subject of clock making. John started with an excellent description of the various designs, showing several examples of finished clocks to illustrate his techniques.
John then went on to make a recessed bezel clock making a delicate and complicated process look very easy.
Thanks John for a demonstration with interest for the advanced as well as the novice turner.
This Month’s Competition
Mark Howells won with a highly polished Yew pen, a well-deserved winner.
Following on from the clock demonstration by John the next competition will be a clock but with two options:
1. With a recessed bezel and
2. No bezel with the hour markers as “buttons” on a plain face laid out using a dividing head.
Will be the 13th November, first half a talk by a qualified first aider on CPR followed by some turning, yet to be determined.
1. The hands on meeting will be next week as usual the fourth Thursday of the month, and
2. AWGB subs due at the November meeting
When items of club equipment and tools are on loan, please ensure they are brought to the various meetings particularly for the hands on evenings so that members can receive tuition with adequate equipment available.
