“Tips Tricks and Jigs”

Peter Toch demonstrated several of his fixtures including one for measuring bowl bottom thickness,  another for steadying your hand while marking the bottom of a bowl.  He also showed his pencil holders.

John O’Connell showed his arraignment for using a cutoff wheel on the lathe, several home made tools for texturing on the lathe and a jig for measuring diameters of shells to fit to the finials.  John also showed his vacuum chuck and an jig for mounting on a chuck to make offset pendants.

Dan Madar showed a lathe mounted tool holder,  a home made chatter tool,  and several gadgets for use at the lathe.
