Septemberâ€™s Saturday demo featured threaded posts and nuts. Peter showed us how to thread a post with its nut, then use the structure to make a jig fixed to the lathe bed in order to provide a work table for a router. This was used to route the slots for the radial decoration to a bowl.

September Wednesday Meeting - â€œShow & Tellâ€.
The September Wednesday demo encouraged members to bring in useful tools & jigs. They were treated to a variety of ingenious items so, thanks to all who contributed. A few are shown here - the reuse of a keyless chuck; a â€œsafe trayâ€ for use cutting with a table saw; and the re-use of a screw-chuck fitting to turn off-centre.
The members were also shown a three balloons (made by Tony Hartney and friends) that were made as toys to be presented to the children of the Tallaght Hospital. More details on the Sep Meetings Page and the Oct Newlsetter.
