Lathe Fund

CIWW established this fund to finance the upgrade of the lathe used for demonstrations for the general meetings and for the Turning Special Interest Chapter.  The full project includes the lathe, castors, and electrical wiring at the Carpenter's Union Hall.  Before launching this fund, we had received $ 4,600 in commitments, so the balance we are hoping to raise is reduced to only $ 3,400


The lathe we hope to purchase is a Robust Sweet 16, with a sturdy and powerful 1.5 HP motor. Funds will be collected until the May 2021 Turners SIC meeting. At that time, funds on hand will determine which lathe will be purchased.


A plaque will be made to recognize all donors who contributed at least $50 to this campaign.  All donations are welcome and can be made anonymously, or given in honor of, in memory of, in thanks to, in gratitude of, or in recognition of a person of your choosing.


Donations can be made on this page by clicking the Donate button below.  Or you can mail a check, payable to CIWW, to our treasurer, Roger Poer, at:

If you mail a check, please indicate that it’s for 'New Lathe Fund
