Talk and demo by

Martin Dickinson

Club meeting - September 28th 2017

In good club (Blue Peter style) tradition Martin took us through the steps of producing our own Longworth chuck.  Using three bits of scrap Baltic Birch ply (>14” square), some 6mm bolts, some demijohn stoppers, a purchased faceplate and a marker pen parcel taped to a woodworkers compass, Martin talked us through how he made his Longworth chuck for about £35.  Instructions in detail are contained on the attached pdf.    

Leadership awards

Four members of the club recently completed a course at the local college and last night were given their awards.  The awards went to:  Kenny Morison Peter Jackson John Henderson Alan Fawcett Ian Frizzell and Brian Etchells.  The award means they can now supervise others who want to use the more dangerous items of machinery.
