Week 12 – Ecole Escoulen – Threading

2 December 2018Aiguines, France

Another amazing week of learning new skills at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France this last week.

We spent a few days learning how to do threading using a machine made and designed by Pierre Deletraz. The principle of the threading machine has been around for a long long time, there is a very old foot powered wooden lathe in the entrance hall at the school that works in a similar way. Pierre just improved on this and another design he saw and I must say the results if you take your time and respect the various measurements are very satisfying.
