    January Meeting

    Mike Meredith – Chainsaw 

    Maintenance & Sharpening

    Online Demo

    Mike Meredith - Chainsaw Maintenance & Sharpening

    Mike demonstrates how to clean your saw, change fuel filters, and most importantly how to properly maintain and sharpen your chains.

    He covers the anatomy of a chain, how to tell when it needs to be replaced, and demonstrates both hand sharpening with files and with sharpening tools from various manufacturers. 

    This 25 minute video will be online after the meeting and available on the NWWT website.

    On-Line Demo

    The Multnomah Art Center will still be closed so this will be another on-line meeting using Zoom. Meeting information will be sent to all members a few days before the meeting.

    The Open Shop is directed toward the new turner but all are welcome.  Bring a project you want help finishing.  Bring questions about methods.  There will be six lathes available to use.  Bring your own tools and wood or buy wood there.  

    We will have two sharpening stations to help you get that sharpening method right.  Bring your tools, bring your questions. There is no more important topic for the new turner (or the old ones for that matter) than sharpening. 

    • Open for NWWT members only
    • Bring your own tools
    • Bring your own PPE (face shields, dust protection)
    • COVID Masks are required at all times
