If you have ever attended a previous Summer Bash, you may know that at the end of a long hot day a unique 4 Jaw Chuck competition takes place called CLASH AT THE BASH. This year it will be called the 4 JAW SMACKDOWN!
It is a duel between two individuals to see who can chuck up and indicate most accurately a complex part that is not always round or symmetrical, the fastest. As the name suggests, it's all won or lost on a 4 jaw chuck.
The test is also never fully know until the last minute, so the competitors do not know what to expect.
In 2017 Keith Fenner (Turn Wright Machine Works) was able to edge out Adam Booth (Abom79) in the final to secure the Championship. Round #3 from 2017 can be viewed here: * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X73F3s3MBu0&t=5s
However, this year the event will be open to the public, so any attendee can participate. See here for details:
This year 100% of the proceeds from the auction of this No#1 copy will be contributed to the cash prize money for this years 2019 winner. This copy will also be autographed by all the You Tubers in attendance and this book will contain serial number #1/#250.
