The first half of the demonstration will cover turning a variety of multi-axis spindles, including the basic mechanics of multi-axis turning.The second half of the demonstration will present the methods used for turning a lidded box that is turned on 3 axes, so that the outcome has a 120-degree twist running along the length of the box.
The Demonstration will explore:
- The main elements of multi-axis turning
- A simple process for the layout of the center points that induce the twist.
- A method to control direction of the twist.
