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.
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.
