Tony and I talked for a while tonight regarding Demo's. One of the things we discussed was not wanting to bore folks with certain type demos, like basic turning finishing and so on. When I became a Manager some 27 years ago, one of the things I always tell my employees is that if you do you job everyday you should come back at the end of the day and have learned something. We deal with a multitude of contractors. Each has their on way to accomplish the same end result.

Woodworking and Penturning is the same way. We each have our own ways of doing it. Any number of us could get up and do a casting demo and I guarantee we each would learn something from the other that we would take back and use. My point is we all have something to teach. We all have the ability to learn. So regardless of how boring or basic you think a demo may be we will learn something. Some of the most valuable information for me has stemmed for conversations among the group during demos. Folks telling how they do it. Each and every meeting we have, I am always impressed with the quality and workmanship each of you have. Now we just need guys and gals to share it.

Thanks

I can do the Chinese lazer engraver thing with a CA finish or without?

I am happy just seeing the folks, looking at pens, and going to Chik-fil-a for lunch. I am only good for the morning session, but if any one wants the time to demo something else - feel free. See you folks then! I have my 35th in NY next May. Enjoy!

I'm not sure if this is a statement, or a question, but I'll toss in: if you want to have a pen laser engraved, I always encourage folks to have them finished. You'll get a much crisper engraving than if you engrave and then finish.

That is all...

Sorry Steve. And thanks for asking me to clarify...it was a statement - a demo suggestion for the meeting.

One week, and I can't wait to see everyone. Right now we have TonyL Scheduled to do some demos. As my hand is still on the mend, I will plan to do a demo at our next meeting on finals. We still have plenty of opportunities for folks to do demos.

We also have some great door prizes offered for this meeting. So if anyone has anything they would like to donate please let me know and bring it along.

I am going to do waterless sanding/finish on CA (on wood) and/or acrylic blank and I will bring my Chinese laser engraver. I can do both in the am. I will just need a 1015 or larger..something with a 2MT. Looking forward to see all. Even if you don't like my demos...folks seemed to be amused by what you guys call my ever so slight Queens/Brooklyn accent. :-).
