Next General Meeting

Monday February 4, 2019

A talk by an expert teacher and maker
as well as a detailed talk on
steels for woodworkers

Andrew Knight – teacher maker

Andrew teaches Industrial Technology at Northmead Creative and Performing Arts High School.
He won the recent challenge given to all NSW woodwork teachers to submit a project where they designed, documented and created a piece of fine woodwork. 
Andrew will speak about his winning project – an innovative, Ripple Document box – and discuss developments and trends in the education of young people in our high schools in relation to woodwork and associated skills.

… and adjourned from our December meeting…

Steels ain’t steels

There is a bewildering array of steel alloys designed to do very specific jobs. What’s the best one for a
woodworker’s plane blades? Chisels? Other tools?

What is the difference between 01 steel, A2 steel and PM-V11 steel? And what do those names mean?

We sent Steve Townsend out to research the topic thoroughly. At the meeting he will give a
presentation which he promises will make the choices clear and simple. We’ll see …

PLUS, an intriguing extra: John Brassell will be giving a short talk on his latest project which “involves Kumiko and jigs” 
???  More will be revealed….
