Notes from the September meeting

Tom Borener presented this month’s program: “The Joyner Off- Center Jig”. This jig is a faceplate tool that provides a creative way to make small multi-axis turnings. The jig has 8 centers and 24 index positions. It is especially useful when precision cuts are needed for intricate patterns and repeatability. Tom states that the jig is typically used for making pendants, earrings, box lids, bottle stoppers, refrigerator magnets and compact mirrors.

Tom demonstrated turning pendants. Using scrap pieces from his work shop he creates small circular discs to attach to the jig about ¼ to 3/8 inches thick. Using double stick tape he holds the disc to the jig. (Malca carpet tape).

Here are some of his talking points:

Also presented was a homemade off-set chuck. The instructions for the "Offset Turning Chuck", an article appearing in the February 2015 issue of American Woodturner, can be downloaded from the AAW website (www.woodturner.org).

Thank you Tom for a great demonstration!!
