Bell Woodturners meet at 7:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month at the Bell Community Center in Bell, Florida.
The next meeting of the Bell Woodturners will be held on Thursday November 14th, 2019 at 7PM at the Bell Community Center in Bell Florida.
This month’s demonstration we’ll be an overview of common work piece mounting methods for the lathe. The discussion will be mostly about chucks covering the different jaw types (dove tail, serrated, etc) and operating mechanisms (scroll, tommy-bar). The advantages/disadvantages of each will be considered. Face plates and various drive centers will also be covered, along with tail stock live centers. Examples of most across several brands will be available for inspection. Vacuum chucking will also be sucked into the discussion.
Our Sawdust Session is usually the following Saturday at Joan and Larry’s shop from 9am-12pm. The Sawdust Session is an opportunity for you to get help with any woodturning issues. If there’s sufficient interest expressed at the meeting Thursday, there will be a Sawdust Session on Saturday. An email announcement will follow Thursday’s meeting.
Bell Woodturners was established in the year 2000 in Bell, Florida to serve local woodturners with education, fraternity and sharing our turned wood art with each other and our community.
