We won't have time to do any casting plus bringing the needed equipment proves to be a hassel. But, there will be enough knowledgeable members in attendance to answer most of the questions on casting.

We can surely give some pointers and tips on using a skew. I will bring a couple and we can even have some practice time.

Looking forward to the meeting.
Don

What about something from Seamus7227 about the way, maybe a demo, of how he cuts out the coins and makes those beautiful pens?

How about something on segmenting?

Since a lot of this group (not me necessarily) anything anyone can share with the others to inspire some creativity and/or share some special skills.

Demo not needed. Information is more than adequate on casting.

I think we will have ample knowledge available to answer most any question about casting. I look forwad to the discussion.

I don't think it is fair to Seamus to ask him to share how he makes the coins thin for his pens. If everyone were making them (like the various styles of casting) then that would be different. He has a process and I'm sure he is wanting to keep it somewhat under his cap. I know I would if in the same boat. I will not be asking him to share about his coins. I can't stop others from doing so. He is a friend and I respect him enough to not ask. If and when he is ready to share I'm sure he will.

Personally I;'m not into segmenting. Maybe somneone attending is and would be willing to some insight and skills next time.

What else do we want to add to the menu. We may have to leave a topic or two for the next meeting.

Do a good turn daily!
Don

Hey There! This is the big Saturday for the meeting at Wood World. I just received a PM from Don and he asked if I would post a heads up for those that will be coming for the first time. We normally have a blank swap at the end so bring something to throw into the hat so you can participate. There are no requirements just a blank that you think someone might like. The official start time is 10am but he said he will shoot for 9am if you want to get there early to shop around. We have to set up chairs ourselves but they have some there we can use. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there and remember there's no age limits so bring all that's willing to come.

ok so i have an update. A good friend of mine is supposed to be coming down to do some snake hunting on his ranch saturday morning and has asked me to assist him. So naturally since i have the gear to do so, that is what i will be doing. Depending on the weather, i may or may not be able to attend the meeting. I've got to be able to keep my snakeskin supply well stocked! I will post an update later

There is hardly ever a penturners meeting, there is hardly ever a Blade Sports cutting competition. Of course, both are scheduled on March 28, so if I get to penturners, I'll be late.
Maybe by the time I get there Seamus will be doing a demo on snake skinning with the "catch of the day".
