Santa Fe High School – Club Project 2015

Several members, Dave, Allan and Cleve in particular have really been busy for about a month.  They have firmed up a project with the Santa Fe High School.  The wood workshop has several lathes, tools, and accessories.  These TEW members have gotten together with the teacher (Dana R.) and the principal to work out a plan for community support of the project.

Here are a few pics taken during the first day of demonstrations at the school.  In two 90 minute class periods over 50 students really enjoyed seeing spindle and bowl turning.  And in one case, bowl flying!

2015 January 12 – Meeting Announcement

Monday- 6PM- Jan 12, 2014   Enchanted Woodturners Meeting

Nancy Rodriguez Community Center

 Al Mirman will show how to make, from scratch start to finish, a hollow vessel using the Trent Bosch Visualizer system.  Watch the video | http://trentbosch.com/introducing-the-trent-bosch-visualizer/ 

What’s different about Trent’s Visualizer?  On a TV screen you can and will see exactly where the cutting tool is inside the vessel, which gives you absolute precision wall thicknesses. (You can use a computer screen at home if you don’t have a TV).
Scratch start to finish means: 1.  how to prepare the blank for hollowing;  2.  hollowing the vessel using the Trent’s stabilizing system ( i.e. a contraption like Lyle Jamieson’s or anyone else’s, except this is Trent’s contraption)   3.  post hollowing finishing.

This will be a fabulous demonstration!

The Nancy Rodriguez Community Center, 1 Prairie Dog Loop.

The meeting will start promptly at 6PM with a buffet and open bar, so be on time!


P.S.  Come and cheer for the longevity of your new officers, you may be nominated to fill a vacancy.

Sales! November 2014 NMWT Member Tool & Wood Sales

Below is a PDF document describing two separate sales by NMWT members.  They are both on the same PDF with photos:

Dan Shipman, a former President and long-time member is generously donating the proceeds from a Grizzly 2 HP Dust Collector and a Ryobi 10″ Table Saw.  The Dust Collector includes all related pipes, fittings, etc.
Larry Anderson, a former Newsletter Editor, has a very large collection of wood blanks and some flat stock.  Many species are included, and his inventory of pen blanks alone runs in excess of 1000.  The attached document lists prices for the pen blanks, and description of the other items.  Larry needs to make room for a large project in his barn.
Neither of these sales are scheduled, so consider them both “first come” availability.  Please contact Dan or Larry directly, and I’ve provided phone and email contact information for both in the attachment.  Please do not respond directly the website or the email you received regarding sale details.
