Demonstration October 2, 2102. Tuesday Evening 6:30 PM-

BAND SAW Tuning and Proper Use by Dave Powless

Band saws can be dangerous, but if used properly it, they are very safe and  a great tool to have in your shop. Dave will show us proper alignment and safe usage.

No more dangerous than a table saw....use them carefully and they will give you many hours of wonderful help.

Come and see some new ideas, If you don't get a good idea we will give you a free cup of coffee!

The largest tree, a Willow Oak in North Carolina is located in the Village of Waxhaw, NC according to North Carolina's Champion Big Tree Database maintained by the North Carolina Forest Service. I guess we won't be getting any of this wood for turning anytime soon. We don't have a band saw large enough at the present time!

The Harrisons -father Ken and sons -Graham and Scott. Ken saw how much his sons were
enjoying woodturning so he decided to also make chips.


A short meeting at 6:30pm, followed by a smashing Demo....-not literally

Bring something new you turned, a blank to share with others, and a creative mind. You will have an enjoyable evening.
