We have taken in new stocks of lathes and bench grinders and have decided to run some Summer offers to tempt you!
 Nova Galaxi Lathes
Galaxi lathes, still with a free SuperNova2 chuck and only while current stocks last, we are offering to pay the pallet charge for ALL UK postcodes except the islands.
If you live on one of the islands and would like one, or can call in and collect, do call us on 01304366360 or email us and we’ll sharpen our pencil!
To date, the smallest car we have loaded a Galaxi in is a Ford Focus. It sat down on its springs like four fat ladies were in it, but it did the job!
If you haven’t seen Dave using his on YouTube take a look. He’ll never make a salesman but he’s picking up the turning ok.
  Record SC4 Chucks
Record SC4 chucks are back in stock!
After a long delay, we are expecting to take delivery of our back-ordered chucks next week so have made them all available online again in anticipation.
 6" Record Power Grinders
Ahead of a newly designed bench grinder due in September, Record have taken delivery of the long established RSBG6 bench grinders so we have bought  bundle of them and are offering them at £59.00.
This offer will run all the time Record have stock of this model.
As with all record machines, these are covered by their unique five year warranty.
  CL4, CL3 and DML320 lathes
We are offering all of these with a FREE Homegrown Variety Box to get you started.
This offer will run until July 1st 2018.

A brief newsletter as Spring approaches!
 M33 x 3.5 Supernova2 Chucks
With a shortage of M33 x 3.5 threaded chucks in the UK at the moment, we have secured a batch of dedicated thread Supernova2 chucks with a free 2" faceplate thrown in and still priced at £130.00!
This offer is valid while current stocks last.
 Back in Stock!
After a gap in supplies, we now have stock of all the lathes we catalogue and the BS350 bandsaw back in stock!
Available for collection from the shop or mail order delivery.
The capacities of this machine and its overall size make it a perfect choice for the smaller workshop.
It is also ideal as a second lathe for regular use on small work and its portability means it can be used at demonstrations and shows.
This lathe is extremely well finished with polished metal handles, spindle locks with indexing and graduated markings on the tailstock barrels.
Many of these features are normally only found on expensive professional lathes.
With many features designed to make this an easy machine to use such as a
re-designed fence, larger table and cam action blade tensioner for easy blade change and tension re-setting.
This machine is driven by a smooth running induction motor with plenty of power to ensure the user can make full use of the maximum depth of cut available.

Delivery of our 2018 catalogue should be completed by Royal Mail during the week commencing January 8th
They are delivering two pallets direct from our printers and we have a third pallet here for catalogue requests during the year.
If you are a member of a turning club and would like us to send out a bundle of catalogues for your members, please contact us.
As happens every year, suppliers come and go, we drop a few products and take on few new ones and with the incremental expansion that has been our way for over twenty years now, we somehow find new display space in our bulging shop.
 So what’s new for 2018?
Gordon Blake is our new part-time team member giving us a total of seven bods scurrying around like ants now.
OK, he’s not so new but like Mike, Sadie and Aldred, made the mistake of coming into the shop as a regular customer then got lumbered with a job and is woodturning nuts, both essential qualifications here.
In terms of new blanks, we have added Spalted Beech, Cedar, English Walnut and Norway Maple to our range.
Spalted Beech
English Walnut
Norway Maple
 Lower Crushgrind® prices.
As  Main UK stockists for CrushGrind® mills we have been able to reduce prices and this year are offering a further 10% discount on any mix of ten mill mechanisms, in the catalogue and online.
We have also added the 284mm mechanisms to complete the range.
Please note that we only sell genuine CrushGrind® mills.
 Milliput Two-Part Epoxy Putty
It seems that the whole world knew about Milliput two-part putty, except us.
We were introduced to it then looked around, was told about Jimson’s Stuff on YouTube and wondered why the rest of the turning world are not talking about it as a way of embellishing rims and the sides of bowls and boxes by those looking to add an extra feature.
Search Jimson’s Stuff on YouTube to see some very relaxed and informative videos on the subject.
 And there are more  . . . but we'll not load your screen with more images:
From Planet,  Drive Centres, Tail Centres plus the new Bar-Man Clamps.
From Liberon the full range of Gilt Creams and their Water Based Dyes.
Two new bandsaws from Record Power, the Sabre 350 and Sabre 450.
Galaxi and 1624 II lathes from Nova with FREE CHUCK OFFER!
And finally, do take a browse of our Clearance/End of Line pages.

  Spalted Hornbeam & Spalted Beech

Spalted Hornbeam is probably the most spectacular of the spalted timbers we produce.
Rarely available in large quantities or sizes, this batch is from around 3 tonnes we laid up in 2016 and milled last winter. Available spindle squares.
Once it has sold, it will be some time before we can offer more.
Spalted Beech.

The most well-known of the spalted timbers, last winter we started milling the 60 tonne parcel we bought in a few years back and have since bought more in an effort to keep up with demand. Available in circular discs and spindle squares.

Limited amounts in the bigger sizes at the moment but we are working our way through it and have a large display in the shop

There was only one large blank from the whole batch and it had a few cracks. 

Guess who nicked it!

16" x 3", this dish is now on display in the shop.

  New NOVA 1624 II 
Nova have updated and brought back the 1624.
Formerly the 3000 and then the 1624-48, if the Galaxi is the automatic Range Rover of the lathe world, this 1.5hp machine must surely be the Land Rover Defender!
Solid cast and old fashioned reliable.
To kick off the new promotion, we can offer the Nova 1624 II lathe with a FREE Nova G3 chuck for only £1100.00 plus carriage if appropriate.

We still have the Nova Galaxi at £2400.00 plus delivery and you can see Dave playing with his new one on our YouTube channel.
That’s all for now folks, knee deep shavings to all!
