Robert Sorby Tour

Carbatec are currently conducting a Robert Sorby tour around each of their stores across Australia.  Should be an interesting evening!

Robert_Sorby_Tour_2014Follow the link to see specific dates, and to book into one of the (free) sessions.

Not sure what they will be showing – turning tools for sure, perhaps some of the specialist ones (chatter tools, spiral texture tools), but hopefully some of the interesting chucks as well – eccentric chucks, modular tool rest etc.  Perhaps some of their non-turning tools?  Don’t know – looking forward to finding out!

turnmastertoolsgroupMight have to leave the credit card at home – sounds ‘dangerous’!

Especially if they show that cutting threads is easier than I imagine.

 

 

Web broadcasting video

Received a rather interesting email tonight from Toolstoday.com.  They send out a regular email promoting their latest router bit, video, sawblade etc, (and I subscribe to it – makes a nice break from the mountain of work emails that come through!)

Tonight’s one will look rather familiar 🙂

(And yes, they did seek my permission to put the video on their YouTube channel – I was more than happy to allow it)

 

 

One hundred and eighty

This is what I spent my weekend making. It features dovetailed joinery, wooden hinges, and shaker-style panel doors.

For the full blow-by-blow, check out the next edition of ManSpace magazine.
