Demonstration on Christmas Candle Holders

Normally a tool sharpening demo is held 30 minutes before each meeting. Members are welcome to bring their tools and have a demonstration on sharpening them, or hone their own sharpening skills under the auspices of a skilled woodturner.
A short business meeting begins at 10:00 am and is followed by a demonstration of woodturning by one of our members. The entire event is usually over by 12:00 PM.
TOM COGHILL CoghillTG@alyeska-pipeline.com IS OFFERING TO PURCHASE AND DISTRIBUTE MIKE HOSALUK HOOK TOOL AND SELL IKEA LIGHTS AS DESCRIBED BELOW. PLEASE CONTACT TOM AT THE ADDRESS ABOVE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.
I was going to order myself a new hook tool from Mike Hosaluk (I love that tool). They are $40 each (got the quote from him yesterday). I will wait if others want to order some. This should also be announced at the next monthly meeting. The hook tip is $40, the bar is another $40 with a short handle and $65 for the large handle.
Immediately after the December meeting I will place the order with Mike.

I have brought back some more IKEA lights as before. I have 5 that I am going to sell to club members
NOTE: To decrease the weight I removed the heavy metal weight from these lights. As turners, we make magnetic bases, so it should not impact the operation of these for purchasers.
Jet and Powermatic are having a one day sale at Hardware Specialties on December 2. 15% off lathes and other power tools. 50% off lathe stands when purchased with lathe and 50% off clamps. This is a tremendous opportunity and the best prices of the year.
