Ten Turners Turning event will return to Nuneaton

 

ten turners turning 2016

 

Following the success of Ten Turners Turning at Nuneaton in March 2014, Axminster Tools & Machinery plan to hold a second event in March 2016.

During this two-day event, the professional turners will demonstrate their skills and unique styles of woodturning, explaining any useful tips, techniques and easier ways of achieving the desired result and produce their own trademark turned pieces. Both Friday and Saturday afternoons will see the pro-turners competing against each other and against the clock in the Ready Steady Turn competition. Anyone who visited Axminster’s main Tools & Machinery Exhibition many years ago may remember the Ready Steady Turn woodturning competition. The name has been resurrected and the Nuneaton version will be run along similar lines.   

The line-up for this event is impressive: Andrew Hall (the Hatman), Andy Rounthwaite, Joe Laird (from Ireland), Mark Sanger, Phil Irons, Richard Findley (2013 winner), Steve Heeley (local boy), Tracey Owen and Axminster’s own Colwin Way and Jason Breach.  “We’re really looking forward to hosting once again a major woodturning event in our store. It really will be an exciting couple of days for both customers and staff alike”, said Nuneaton store manager, John Flavell.

There will be a wide range of Jet and Axminster lathes on display, including the Jet 4224B and Axminster’s Hobby and Trade ranges; this event will provide a good opportunity to see many different lathes in action.

The dates for diaries are Friday 11th & Saturday 12th March 2016 from 10am-4pm at Axminster Tools & Machinery, Bermuda Trade Park, Nuneaton CV10 7RA. This is a FREE, non-ticketed event; AT&M anticipate that the central location of Nuneaton will attract many visitors as it is within five minutes of the M6.
