Sign up for our “Woodturning 101” Six Week Workshop

Tuesdays 7 – 9 PM (weekly, every Tuesday 4/25 – 5/30)
Instructor: David Belser
Level: Beginner/novice
Age: Adult (HS student age at the discretion of the instructor)
*Tools and materials included

Cost:
– Manchester Makerspace Member: $175
– Non-Member: $200

DIRECT RSVP: https://mmwt101.eventbrite.com

This 6-week class is an introduction to woodturning for beginners and novices – no prior experience is required. You will learn basic spindle and bowl turning. The class focuses on fundamentals of turning – tool use and sharpening, wood selection and mounting methods. Materials will be provided for practice and simple projects that allow you to develop your skills. Each class session is split between group instruction and hands-on lathe time with 1 on 1 assistance.

It is strongly recommended that you purchase a membership at Manchester Makerspace that coincides with the class. Doing so will allow you to spend additional “lab” time outside of the scheduled class periods.

Regarding tools & materials:

Tools and materials are provided for this class – you do not need to bring anything. Students that are enthusiastic about turning may want to acquire a personal set of tools – there are many options available, including making your own. The instructor can help you select and can recommend tools that are appropriate and affordable – take advantage of this!

The same applies to materials, this is an introductory class with lots of opportunities to practice – you may find that you want more material to work with. Fortunately wood is plentiful and cheap or free in NH – you do not want to be learning on an expensive piece of exotic hardwood. The instructor can help you acquire as much material as you desire.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
David Belser has been creating, engineering and tinkering for about as long as he can remember. He started turning about 14 years ago making tops, bowls & boxes this work evolved into a focus on mechanicals and art pieces. A past president of the Granite State Wood Turners, current wood shop resource manager at Manchester Makerspace and a (previously) juried member in the League of NH Craftsman, David enjoys introducing other people to wood turning and art. He has demonstrated internationally and at numerous clubs and symposiums including the national symposium of the American Association of Woodturners.

His award-winning work has been shown and exhibited around the country and appeared on the back cover of “American Woodturner” magazine. Contact David via email at: turning@davidbelser.com. David’s website:www.davidbelser.com

Help Spread the Word on Manchester Makerspace’s “Vertical Milling Machine” gofundme

Please visit our gofundme page for complete details and to help support with a donation: https://www.gofundme.com/mhtmakerspace-milling

We are in need of a vertical milling machine! These precision machine tools look a little like big drill presses, but with the ability to move the work piece very precisely side-to-side, forward & back, and up & down relative to the cutting tool.  Here is a nice video  that shows basically what they look like and can do.

Every small machine shop has one because they are so useful.  Examples of what they can be used for:
·       Flycutting heads and engine blocks to make mating surfaces flat.
·       Boring out cylinders
·       Machining very precision hole patterns for things like motor mounting plates and gearboxes
·       Machining key ways in shafts

Here are some great videos that show things you can use a vertical milling machine for:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gH8uUj8-3A0

And here’s another video of something a bit more ambitious:
Homemade Trans Adaptor a Lathe Mill Project

Anyone at the Makerspace that wants to make precision metal parts for their own machines, parts for cars, do metal repair work will find this machine indespensible.

To get a vertical milling machine into the Makerspace and get it hooked up will require about $2700.  This will cover the cost of purchasing a decent quality used machine, all the basic tools need to operate the machine and get it cutting metal, and the materials needed to pour a level floor pad to put the machine on.  This is the starting point and we can’t really get started until we gather this initial amount.

If we can get a total of $3500 we’ll be able to purchase some really useful extras, like a digital position readout (DRO) and a rotary table.  DROs really help make more precise parts and help users keep track of how far they’ve moved parts while machining them.  Rotary tables are useful for machining circular bolt patterns and round sections that would be hard to make on our lathe.

DRO explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBoxmqoIbXQ

Rotary Table use examples:

If we could make a stretch goal total of $12000 we could make this a computer controlled milling machine (CNC mill).  This would allow users to make very complicated metal parts.

Here is one of the options we could purchase with your help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b0Jf-xzE0s
