Default May meeting

Just wanted to post a thread inviting everyone to our next meeting. It's scheduled for May 5th (yes that's Cinco de Mayo) so mark your calendar. The meeting will be held at my house and I live in west Little Rock very near where WalMart is on Hwy 10 and Chenal.
More details to follow but until then enjoy the early spring we are having!

Sounds fun, what are some demos going to be this go round?

Also, did we ever set a date on when our pens needed to be in by?

The early spring up and dissapeared like a fart in this very cold wind! You must have not been outside today before you wrote this, LOL.

I'll be there!


And your right Emerson, we didn't set a time for the pens to be done. Whenever is a good date. No need to mail them, guess the next meeting would be fine?

I agree, lets all try and get some pens for the troops done by the next meeting. I have 4 so far. And as soon as my order from timberbits gets here (with my new 7mm drill bits) I'll be able to make some more.

Did you know your drill chuck can come out of your tailstock. I do now. And then it breaks the blank . . . . . comes out and goes flying . . . . . . . knocks over a bowl of water with micromesh in it . . . . . . . . . which gets all of your tools wet . . . . . . . . . . and of course breaks your only 7mm drill bit.

OH I almost forgot . . . . . . . DAMHIKT!!!

I guess I could do a demo on this. Whoever want's to see this has to bring their drill bit of choice.

Default Suggestion for next meeting.

How about we have a short session of tips, and tricks of the trade. maybe if everyone has a unique way of doing something that they can show in 5 minutes or so. I have a couple in mind. It doesn't have to be elaborate, just something that you do to make life easier around the lathe, and/or penmaking.

EDIT: I won't be showing how to order a replacement 7mm drill bit in 5 seconds.

You mean like using those plastic baggies to apply a CA finish, or maybe not picking your nose with fresh CA on your finger, or something like that?

Scott (like your thinking, get to the food faster) B

Remember I said something you could show. But hey, it's your demo (meaning your nose).

But yes, I think you've got the idea. I think Shawn should show us how to get $4000+ in grant money to setup a shop.
