    The Guild of Oregon Woodworkers is now inviting the three local turning clubs to their estate sales, especially if there are turning tools available.  Estate sales are a huge community service  that the Guild and recently NWWT does for families with a wood shop and tools that need to be disposed.  This is truly a win-win opportunity for both our members and the families.  Our members get an opportunity to expand their tool collections with great deals and the families get a fair price.

    The next sale is Saturday, June 17 in Hillsboro.  See details under Events.

    Just a reminder to think about your own shop and disposition when that time comes.  Where is the 700 pound lathe going to go and who is going to manage it.  Do your family a favor and plan ahead.  Contact Roger Crooks for details on what advice the Guild gives families.

    $500

     

    As we’ve previously reported, one of the Woodturners of Olympia members, Larry Hauch, recently passed away and willed an ornamental lathe to the club.  The board has decided to sell it with the profits benefiting the club.

     

    Ornamental turning for those not familiar with it produces beautiful and intricate designs in wood.  The lathe being offered is also known as an MDF Rose Engine, which uses rosettes and cutters to make the intricate patterns.  More information can be found on the recognized US Ornamental expert, Jon Magill, web site: http://www.rogueturner.com/root/Home.html

     

    The lathe being offered for sale includes the following components:

     MDF Rose engine base

     Two rosettes

     Trim router and speed control

     Quick change tool post

     Storage base with wheels

     Multiple carving/cutting bits
