Default Houston Area meeting - July 17

Since there were exactly 0 votes for July 10, looks like our next meeting will be July 17 at my place in Pearland. I figure we can start about 1PM and go till???
A few things to take care of -
1 - What demos would you like to see?
2 - What demo would you volunteer to do?
3 - Not planning on a meal, so would you like to have snacks, ie brownies, cake, cookies, chips and dip, drinks? (We can do adult beverages, but remember you will have to drive home).

Post below if you are planning on attending and your answer to the above questions.
I'll get maps out to everyone closer to the meeting date. And to those of you that haven't been to my place, my shop is air conditioned.

I've given notice that the 17'th is Dad's day off, so unless something drastic ends up happening, I'll be there.

I'd really like to see a discussion on how to accurately align the tailstock and headstock tapers on a mini lathe. I'll even bring a patient for the procedure :-) Seriously, if an extra jet mini would help, I'll bring it anyway.

I don't think we really need me doing "how NOT to get the result you are wanting" demo's

I'm all for munchies, I'll bring something if we decide to. Or, I can bring coffee and fixings if somebody want's to supply a pot. (mine's plumbed in and not portable)

I'll supply some chips and dips. Salsa?, Hot as you can stand. 12pk of beer and 12pk of cokes. I can bring a coffee maker too if that will be enjoyed.
About demos...I'd like to see the process of a closed end or a kit-less design come to fruition. I've got a work sharp 3000 I can bring for anyone that might want to see it in action and sharpen a dull tool. I'd also like to learn more about chucks and collets (but that is part of the kit-less lesson).

I would love to come if at all possible. I like the idea of sharpening. I wish someone would show me what I need. It just seems so damn hard to sharpen my tools. This is all still new and I'm trying to learn. Thanks guys

Shawn

Shawn, I'll bring my JoolTool...it really is easy!

I'll also bring some queso fundido (queso dip with meat in it) and chips to go with that salsa!

As for demos, I still haven't worked up the courage to try casting anything onto a freakin tube, despite having several things I'd LIKE to try! I really need some hands-on training first! I've got pretty much all the neccessary stuff (I think!) in case someone wants to take a stab at getting me (and others?) to understand!

Do you have the molds? If so, bring them and we'll do a casting demo.

I've got a straight mold from Charlie, but not one of the resin savers. I do have some dowels to put the tubes on tho. I'll bring what I have and we'll see what, if anything, I'm missing.

I have both PR and Alumilite and several things to put on a tube.

So far it looks like a demo on sharping and casting. What else????
Not exactly sure what james is looking for in the way of alignment, but if he can still bring his mini, despite his recent mishap, we'll see what we can do.
As for snacks, bring whatever you want, I'm not gonna be picky.

I voted that I didn't care on the date - not that I would make it on the 17th.

I'll try to make it, but won't know for sure if I can until a few days before.
