Notes of meeting 12th June 14
This month there were 21 members and guests present.
Before the evening started the club was shown the new Jet lathe and the new storage cupboard.
This month’s demonstration with Bert Alexius covered the manufacture of wooden toys and models. The models shown ranged from a crane to lorries and railway engines (see photos). Bert explained the various techniques involved and showed his methods for turning some of the complicated items using jigs and modified tools.
It was a great evening enjoyed by all, many thanks to Bert.
