Wednesday's Turning Chat: Mounting Heavy Blanks

Steve Russell
>Hello to the group,

Please join us this Wednesday night for our weekly Turning Chat. This week our topic will be:

Mounting Heavy Items on the Lathe: Oh my aching back! So you've got a monster blank that you need to get mounted on your lathe. How are you going to do it? What are you using now... Several friends, a few WWF wrestlers, a winch, brute force, prayers to the turning gods? Join us as we discuss options and techniques for saving your back and getting heavy, or unwieldy blanks mounted on the lathe safely.

We will start the chat with a 15 minute review of 2 selected works by our WC friends.
If you are interested in having your work reviewed at the turning chat, remember to email Ron 1 or 2 (max.) photos of some of your recent work (completed or unfinished, in process etc.) for our "Show and Tell" session. Please indicate whether you are submitting the photos as "Completed Work" for a critique, or as an "Assistance Needed" submission that you would like some type of help, or assistance with.

Turning Chat room opens at 9:00pm EDT (For meet and greet)
Show-N-Tell starts at 9:30pm EDT
Main Topic starts at 9:45pm EDT
Post Chat Wrap-Up starts at 10:30pm EDT (For extended discussions if desired)

See you there!
