Ethan,

According to the rental agreement, it is only the lathes that we will have access to. Plan on carbides, or maybe a diamond hone for the HSS.

If there is enough interest, I can see about bringing my own low speed grinder and jig setup.

I'm planning on turning a lot so Im interested in a grinder being brought.

If you'd rather not lug yours around I could bring my 8 in Rikon with the Wolverine setup on it. (I have the stock aluminum oxide wheels, not a CBN)

If anybody has a barrel trimmer or two that gives you fits, bring it with you and we'll sharpen it. If that doesn't help, we'll take turns cursing it. I'll bring a hand drill, too.

I'll bring a drill chuck, 4 jaw chuck, and the drill bits needed for any kit you might have.

I set myself up with 19 pens ready to turn. Two are Berea's new "Long Boy" components.

Looking forward to the turn-fest!

I will have my 'barrel trimmer I made for the lathe. I have 6 blanks already to go. Also will be bringing a chuck and some 'larger' pieces of wood.
Yes, I know we are turning pens but sometimes you need to do something odd just for fun.
Does anyone plan on bring a finishing system? Buffer?
I will have some sand paper to share with those that like to 'power sand'.....LOL

See everyone later......
