 Happy New Year to one and all!
We start 2019 with our annual catalogue due to be landing on door mats all over the UK next week.
We have sent out two pallets full to active customers and have a third one due here for the frequent catalogue requests we receive online and in the shop.
Eight more pages this year so lots of news to start the New Year with.
 Nova lathes and chucks
We have been the largest UK sellers of Nova lathes and chucks for many years and decided  to invest in more lathe stock as well as including the Comet II midi lathe in the catalogue again.
Demand for the Galaxi has out-stripped supplies a few times in the last twelve months so we are now buying multiples into stock and as always, expect to have all Nova lathes on show in the shop.

 New Record Power machines on display
We have converted our former turning course workshops into a working demonstration room for a range of Record Power machinery so that interested people can actually see them at work rather than as shop display machines.
We believe this will give us a facility unique in the UK and plan some demonstration days in collaboration with Record Power.
Dates to be arranged which we will let people know by e-Newsletter.

All up-market machinery for woodworkers who really need to see a machine at work before making such an investment.

 GlassCast® Clear Epoxy Resins

Resins have been the rage for a few years now but as with all new ideas, we prefer to hang back until they show they are not just fads.

With the number of planks we have sold for so-called River Tables and cold cast turnings blanks, we decided to ask customers who we knew were using resins and were steered toward GlassCast®

GlassCast® cold cast resins are self-de-gassing – they set bubble free without the need for a vacuum chamber.

Mainly though, it’s a lot of fun and opens up a huge range of creative ideas for turners and flat woodworkers.

If you get into resins, every plastic pot or carton destined for the re-cycle bin will have a second or third life as a mould!

 Aussie Burrs and Banksia Nuts
We took delivery of new stocks of Australian burrs and Banksias during December.
With the burrs, we have concentrated on those in the 1kg to 4kg weight range and have better Banksia pods/nuts than last year.
 CrushGrind® Mills
CrushGrind® have added a new mechanism to their range, the 100 mm Mini Mill taking it to eight models now.
As main UK stockists for CrushGrind® mills, we cut out the middle-man and believe we are unique in offering a 10% discount on any mix of ten mill mechanisms, in the catalogue and online.
Last year we reduced prices and have held them for 2019.
We only sell genuine CrushGrind® mills.
 Blanks back in stock
We have now dried our 3” yew planks so have topped the shelves with discs and spindles.
The same with 2” Purpleheart discs and spindles.
 And finally
Do check out our clearance page as we clear out old or discontinued stock at silly prices.
 New from Dalmann Timber
12" x 2 1/2" square spindles, an ideal size for Crushgrind® Salt & Pepper mechanisms up to 284mm in length.
We have also decided to list more spindles in this size, please see our Homegrown Spindle range for those currently available.
