Rose Engine Lathe Demo

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at the regular monthly Southern Piedmont Woodturners meeting (in Studio 122, Operations Building), members Jack Reyome and Fred Connell will present a Rose Engine demonstration.

Be sure to see the follow-up Rose Engine workshop on Oct. 28th (listed under Classes).

  1. We present a short power point presentation showing some history, photographs of machines and examples of work and show the difference between Ornamental Turning and Rose Engine work.
  2. We describe the 10 basic parts of a Rose Engine using Rambling Rose and a MDF Rose Engine as an examples.
  3. We use a paper chuck and marking device to show how several of the Rose Engine adjustments effect the outcome.
  4. Finally we use the Rambling Rose Engine to cut some examples.
  5. We will try and answer all questions.

Richard Vanstrum will provide additional Rose Engine parts and equipment for the demonstration.  Roland Hege, Fred Connell and Richard Vanstrum contributed to the power point presentation.

Open and free to the public.  Come out early at 5:30pm to socialize; demonstration will begin at 6:30pm.
