Thanks to Gary von Kuster for taking these pictures and sending in the write up about the recent demo day at Lee Valley.
Several members showed up to demonstrate Lee Valley’s Rikon Variable Speed Lathe. Demonstrations ran from 11am to 4 pm. Paul, Mel, Duncan, Leo and Gary demonstrated turning different things on the lathe and talking to the public about turning and the activities of the Hub City Turners. The most popular as always was the spin top turning my Mel. Several children went away with a free spin top after helping Mel color the turned spin top. Pens, bottle stoppers, candle sticks, peppermills and bowls were demonstrated. Lee Valley was very pleased and we are hopeful another event like this might be arranged for the fall.
