Past Club Meeting:

April 2019 - Turning a Pen by Gordon Patnude

Gordon

Gordon made a very comprehensive presentation of how to create a pen with a turned barrel. He started by listing the toools needed: saw, lathe, mandrels and bushings. He described the turning tools needed. Next came the pen blanks...wood or other material. Then the machining, tubes, more machining and turning. Sanding and finishing is the next step. Finally, the pen parts and blanks are assembled.
