Hands on night

13 September 2018

The September hands on night saw Martin Dickinson once more demonstrating the clubs Robert Sorby sharpening machine and several members making use of the bandsaw.  Graham Ambrose was trying his hand at a new piece he had found on YouTube which is a spinning top that turns itself over while spinning and then continues to spin on the ‘handle’.  Per Graham the chap demonstrating on the internet failed to get his to work (one has to question why he would then post the video but who am I to question another man’s wisdom) so I have not included the link.  Graham had several attempts before getting to the point where his would work and concluded the inner ring needed to be cut away as far as was possible.
