President John Skinner has organized a Group Turning Workshop for June 5 at 6:30 PM at the McKeithan shop. He announced This:

"Our June Demo will be a Workshop by having multiple mini lathes and making Ball and Cup project shown us by Joe Ruminski last month. At the Waxhaw Springfest we packed a box of blanks. We will have the new Rikon Variable Speed Mini-lathes to show off what your money has gone for recently. We will have some face shields but bring your own if possible.   Perhaps we can have a contest who the fastest is to make a cup?     Well, maybe if we can do it safely...!"

Also John ask us to bring three of our most used tools.

Remember the Broom: Don't cut "uphill" -
always cut "downhill" - The long fibres wont break- it will be smoother
