April Club Meeting – Remote Demonstration to your home – Turning a Piston Box by Tod Raines
April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the monthly club meeting using Zoom from your computer, tablet, laptop or even your mobile phone. A clickable link will be sent to club members via email.
Zoom is software that enables video meetings connected through the internet. This means you stay home in comfort and watch and interact with the demonstrator remotely. These are called “Interactive Remote Demonstrations”. Download and print the following instruction: Instructions for connecting to a group meeting with Zoom
Tod Raines will be in his shop with many camera views setup to show you the whole project just like a regular club meeting.
This demonstration will show how to make a piston box. This is a cylinder box made hollow using forstner drill bits. Traditional gouges and tooling will be used for turning although carbide tools will work as well. This project makes use of the tail stock for drilling operations for all the hollowing therefore no special hollowing tools or techniques are needed. There will be some room for some individual design decisions on the style and form of the box.
