Default April 9th Indy Meeting

Hey Folks, I thought I would give you a little update on our upcoming IAP pen turning chapter meeting on April 9th. We have a couple of demos planned at this time. Beginning pen turning for those who are just starting or want to get started. This would be a great time for you to bring and friend and introduce them to the pen turning addiction. This demo will be done by Bill Bettag. Bill has been turning pens for several years and does demo's at Rocklers on a regular basis. Secondly Mike Kennedy of Indy-Pen-Dance will be doing a demo on turning between centers. In other words turning pens without a pen mandrel. I will take your pen turning to a new level. Very simple process and makes your turning much more accurate. Johnnycnc of IAP fame should be there with some of his turning between center bushings to get you started. I am sure Mike and Linda will have some of their first class products. We are still trying to accumulate a few more door prizes so if you have something you want to donate for a door prize or you have someone I can contact about a door prize donation just let me know.
Also we want everyone that will, to participate in a pen swap. Bring a complete pen or a pen kit and blank. We will have a time to draw numbers and you can pick the pen or kit that you want. You must bring a pen or kit to participate in this. It should be fun.*
Another thing we want to try is "share a shop idea". I am sure all of us have that special tip or tool that makes things easier or more fun in your shop. Maybe it a storage idea for your pen kits or parts, a tool you use, a method to document your pens, a secret supplier, a super website, I think you get the idea. Bring that "tip" and we will have a time to share them. I am sure we all can learn something. Don't forget to bring any material or tools that you may want to sale or trade. We will have some tables set up for that. Bring some of you're completed pens for a display table. No matter what you skill level we all like to see each other pens!
Of course we will have our snacks and drinks. Don't forget your $3.00 if possible to help us offset the cost for the snacks.*
I am sure we will update and remind everyone again before the meeting. Get it on your calendar!
We did get several good ideas at our last meeting and we will be trying to implement those as time goes on.

Get out in the shop and starting turning your pen swap pen! It will be fun.

So our next meeting is planned for April 9th at 10:00 am. The meeting will be at the same location as the last one the Avon Parkside Church of the Nazarene located at 47 North C.R. 625 East in Avon, IN. Thanks to Dan Mechuta we have an excellent place to meet.
