First I’d like to say thank you for organising the live zoom demo the other evening. I’ve been coming to the meetings a little while now and was beginning to get to the point where I was gaining enough confidence to experiment on my lathe when the shutdown occurred – I am a total beginner so need all the help I can get. I appreciate the members are from a wide range to experience and expertise but for a beginner this was an excellent session. It was so helpful to watch a project demonstrated showing the stages undertaken. I was particularly struck by the fact that Martin understood a lot of the problems that beginners have and was able to show why these occurred and how to avoid/repair them. I thought the combination of demo and overlay graphics excellent.
I have spent the last 25 years teaching and I know a good teacher when I see one. Please pass my thanks to Martin. I enjoy the learning and social aspects of our live meetings but can see there are real plusses
to this style of demo/teaching.
