Established in 2000
This month it is all members’ opportunity to take part and share with the other members the tips, tricks,
tools, jigs, fixtures and ‘bright ideas’ you have used in your own shop. It’s the “Jigs & Fixtures” meeting. That
means you bring the gadgets, accessories and helping hand fixtures that you have made for your own unique use. That can be anything that helps you turn safely and efficiently. So, make a list, or dig through your tool box and shelves and bring them to share with the rest of us. It is always an interesting meeting to see what great ideas our creative members come up with. (And that means you.)

OUR LAST MEETING
The first meeting of 2019, Danny Smith and his wife
Marilyn gave us a demo and education on drop spindles. First,
Danny demonstrated how he turns the drop spindle whirl by
making a bracelet or shawl broach by turning a ring from the
piece the whirl become. After the ring, he finished the whirl
then turned the shaft that fit in the center hole. ( For pictures
of some drop spindles look in the show and tell pictures.)
After he’d turned the drop spindle, Marilyn explained about
the use of the drop spindles and some of their history.) Danny than turned a shawl pin to be used with the broach he first turned.
Thank you to Danny and Marilyn for sharing your expertise.
The video of each meetings’ demo are available in the
library on DVD to be checked out by members. Also, the
video will be available online at; YouTube Indep
