Easy Wood Tools: Demo by Dave Powless 10/4/2011

The beauty of these revolutionary new turning tools is not really the hefty, 15" brightly finished maple handles, but the uniquely designed carbide cutters. Say goodbye to sharpening as these cutters, which add up to 20 additional hours of turning from each of the four-sides, are replaceable once dulled. Secondly, the cutter’s designed so that you don’t have to 'find the bevel' when turning. Simply advance the tool slowly into the work piece and begin cutting straight in, or sweep the cutter from left to right, or right to left.   The Ci0 Easy Finisher features a round carbide cutter for inside work on smaller bowls, or for cutting coves on spindle work.

Easy Wood Tools offers a series of replaceable carbide cutter woodturning tools that address fatigue, safety and efficiency like no other tools.
Dave Powless will show how to use them properly and why he feels these are great tools to have in your tool box.

Tim Rinehart Wins The Beast Contest!!!!

Tim R. "The Beast" winner
Our own Tim Rinehart has done it again. He entered the Contest at the Woodturners America group (see http://woodturnersamerica.com/ )

The Contest was The Beauty and The Beast. Check out their website and see all the details. His piece in the category of "The Beast"  won out over all the other unique entries.

Apparently the Grand Prize is worth about $1000. What an remarkable event. We will have to ask Tim to show his "Beast" again and of course his prizes at the next meeting on October 3, 2011

Below is a photo of Tim describing his piece at this months meeting and Demo of WWT. Congratulations Tim and a fine job!
