Over the past three weeks there has been an uptick in tool and equipment damage.
I have found and fixed three roughing gouge tools with significantly bent shafts since the beginning of August.
Two parting tools have been found bent.
One tool rest for the Jet lathes was badly bent.
I’d like to think that the individual(s) responsible are just in need of refresher training in lathing basics.
I’d also like to think that the people responsible want to enjoy turning -The tool catches that have caused some of this damage would leave me wishing I’d worn Depends!
Open Invite - If you need a refresher please DM me or catch me when I’m here and we can spend some time going over the basics - No fees/classes, commentary about damages etc… Let’s get you trained up and using the lathes properly.
