Wooden Mixer 2017
Craobh Eo Chapter Challenge Team
Pat was involved in the making of the mixer bowl. This consisted of segmented rings of 24 segments which were stacked and glued together. The base was threaded to sit into the stand. The size of the drum presented challenges from ring size, lathe clearance to finishing. He is one of our more experienced turners and perfection personifies his work.
Tom Burke & Sean Morley
Willie was responsible for the turning of the drum. The turning was done one segment at a time and then gluing up the next segment. This turner is the go to man when problems need to be solved or ideas are required in relation to all matters turning.
Martin took on the task of producing the axle for the mixer. He was also involved in the assembly of the mixer frame and axel setting it up for the drum to be threaded to the frame. Again he is a very experienced turner with lots of good ideas and suggestions. And is very much to the forefront in running our chapter.
