Default Central Texas Meeting - June 13, 2015

Looks like I can host a meeting the weekend of June 13th. We can meet at my shop, starting around 9:30 and run until about 3-4 or so.

If everyone is okay with it, we'll grill burgers like we did our first meeting at my place. I would ask for a $5 donation to offset the cost of food and drinks.

I'll have at least three mini lathes available to use for demos or hands-on. We can decide on various topics as folks offer suggestions.

I can have a cactus juice stabilizing setup to use. I would allow up to 2 blanks per person to be stabilized. No colors.

What topics would you like to see us cover? We should have something for newbies to more experiment folks.

Rick, Sounds good. Will ink it in on the calendar. Looking forward to any new topics. Would like to have maybe a demo or at least a talk on alumalite and PR casting. Something I tried and failed at.LOL. See you in June. Dennis

Great suggestion for a topic. I haven't started casting yet so we'll need someone attending who,can help.

Anyone want to offer to take on the subject?

If we get someone to do it, I can bring my pressure pot and vacuum chamber if necessary. Dennis

perhaps segmenting or even celtic knot blank making. Maybe a discussion on marketing and pricing. (taking from some of the comments on the IAP site.) A users look at different venders, both those on IAP and those that are not. Has anyone tried
steampunk blanks?? Sorry to be hogging all the suggestions, but no else seems to be making suggestions. Dennis

No, please keep the suggestions coming. I'm working on some of these these for hands-on demos if possible. Everyone seemed to like doing something the last time we met.

I'm thinking about crashing your meeting. Just waiting to see if anyone else from the Houston area wants to join me.
